The Native Studies class at Lester B. Pearson Catholic High School in Ottawa again participated in the Project of Heart, decorating tiles to commemorate the Residential School victims and survivors. With the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Comission Report, this year’s class has been particularly focused on the legacy of the Residential School system, and along with the tiles wrote letters to the Federal Government encouraging action on a number of Aboriginal Issues.
The teacher, Michael Bernards, has done Project of Heart now for 6 consecutive years. Congratulations Lester B. Pearson!
