Colinda Clyne, Head of Special Education at John F. Ross C.V.I. in Guelph, whole-heartedly embraced Project of Heart along with her students in April of this year. “The students loved this project”, she reported. She later presented it at her region’s Professional Learning Community’s conference as part of the “making connections” segment of the event.
John F. Ross C.V. I. has a population of 2,000 students, so the learners were able to commemorate the deaths of children from four Indian Residential Schools in Canada. Chosen were: Mohawk Institute IRS (Brantford) , MacIntosh IRS (Kenora), Shingwauk IRS (Sault Ste. Marie), and Pelican Lake IRS (Sioux Lookout). For more information on reports relating to the deaths of the children at these schools, link to:
Project of Heart is grateful for the time, energy, and enthusiasm that the students of John F. Ross C.V. I. put into learning about the Indian Residential Schools and the impact of their continuing legacy. The contributions of these students keep the memories of these children alive. They will not be forgotten.
