In an effort to promote mental wellbeing in students, Senpacqin Elementary School hosted a mini-unity run (called x̌ast spʔus) last week.
The run was modeled and modified after Okanagan Nation Alliance’s Unity Run. The name x̌ast spʔus is a metaphor for the interconnection of good thoughts coming together from the heart and mind.
The school invited the Ntamtqen snma?maya?tn school, sənsisyustən and Outma to join.
Students raised funds for cancer research to contribute to the Terry Fox campaign.
