POH at École secondaire catholique Jeunesse-Nord

Within the native spirituality unit for the grade 11 “World Religions” class, the students at École secondaire catholique Jeunesse-Nord in Blind River, Ontario discovered the history and the impact of the residential school system in Canada for First nations people of the pass and of today.

By listening to survivor’s testimonies and watching the documentary We were children, the group was overwhelmed by the injustice and abuse that occurred within these schools.

By creating the commemoration exhibit, the students hope to share their knowledge of the residential schools to their classmates and friends. Projet du coeur 2Projet du coeur
