Oh my goodness! What an incredible day we had. To start off our day we did our morning check in and snack and then we headed over to the Mâmawêyatitân centre to watch "Supaman". Supaman is an Indigenous man from Montana and he is a very successful Fancy dancer, hip hop/rap artist and presenter. It was such an inspiring performance and I could tell that the kids were fully engaged and respected this man deeply. They had their full attention on him and at the end of the show, the kids were all rushing up to get pictures with him and to talk to him. Supaman is an amazing role model for all students, but especially for those Indigenous students who can relate to his story. He had some very important messages that he shared with students about setting goals and never allowing anyone to stop us from our dreams because the only one who can stop us is ourselves.
Following Supaman's performance, I was introduced to Sarah Longman and I was telling her about how I wanted to see Supaman's show in the evening but the tickets sold out too quickly and I missed out... she proceeded to ask me how many tickets I wanted and gave them to me! What a kind thing to do and she was just such a nice lady!
After we got back to school we had lunch and then did some Indigenous studies. Carina and I also taught some literacy today. After literacy we had physical education and we started the class with a warm-up and then tag... after this we made our way outside and had about half an hour of free time. I joined some of the students who were playing basketball and we all got a good sweat on! One of the boys fell off the play structure so we had to deal with a bit of an injury, but other then that it was great. Once phys. ed. was over it was time to head home!
