Anne Tenning, district vice-principal for Aboriginal Education, was a speaker at the recent Canada’s History Forum in Ottawa.
A Nanaimo school district administrator was in the nation’s capital last month, imparting her wisdom on First Nations education.
Anne Tenning, vice-principal of aboriginal education, represented the school district at the annual Canada’s History Forum in Ottawa Nov. 27, and gave a speech on the role of reconciliation in education, as this year’s theme was indigenous histories.
While Tenning, a member of Stz’uminus First Nation, didn’t attend residential school, her mother – who accompanied her on the trip – did, something Tenning said she uses in her role with the school district.
