Yarning Circle

  • This sacred space embodies our unwavering commitment to the values of reconciliation and unity. Carefully designed as a place to gather, yarn, and learn, our Yarning Circle brings students, families, and the broader community together. It serves as a tribute to First Nations culture, fostering deeper connections and understanding. The HSPA Yarning Circle stands as a reflection of our commitment and respect to the land, its heritage, and the enduring narratives of its peoples.
