As clicking on the image will show, Sherry Ambridge’s students at Dryden High School have decorated their tiles for Project of Heart. Sherry is the Aboriginal Alternative Education teacher at the school, which is in the Keewatin Patricia District School Board. Thank you to Sherry and all of her students.
As part of Aboriginal Awareness Week, Project of Heart held a workshop for employees at Indian Residential Schools Resolution Canada (IRSRC) and representatives from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Embracing the POH initiative, participants had positive comments on the workshop experience: “I learned that Canadians do care about history and how it informs the present” and “it would be great to see this in my son’s school” were typical of the responses the demonstration elicited.
At the end of the day, Residential school survivor Greta Neepin arrived to smudge the participants and the decorated tiles.
