Ottawa Workshop February 8

Project of Heart will begin its journey by traveling to the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec, as part of the OSSTF Professional Activity Workshops on February 8th.

A presentation on the project will be led by Sylvia Smith, a long-time teacher in the Alternate system.

Sylvia will demonstrate how this cross-disciplinary and collaborative endeavour engages students as well as staff in building a portable commemoration that honours the thousands of Aboriginal students who died as a result of the Indian Residential School experience in Canada. Discover how you and your students can participate.
