At Cumberland Community School we will have a travelling display called U’mista. The display will be here April 203 – May 4. The display consists of 2 exhibits the Project of Heart Canoe and Speaking to Memory. During the next few weeks your child could be learning about Residential Schools and reconciliation as part of the British Columbia renewed curriculum. These lessons were developed locally to provide age-appropriate educational materials about Residential Schools to foster open dialogue and strengthen the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Canada and to move towards reconciliation by learning the truth.
The Public is invited to come see the display on April 23 between 3pm and 6pm. This display will be set up in the Multi Purpose Room of the Beaufort building (old Jr). We hope you will find time to come see this display
