The students at Cassandra Public School are so inspiring!
Over the past year, the school has engaged its students in youth-led reconciliation efforts that have lead to many meaningful learning opportunities.
During our visit, the students presented their “Flash Mob” – a part of their WE Walk for Water Campaign on May 10th – and one way the school is continuing conversations on reconciliation in our community.
They also told us about the visit of the Mandamin family from Wiikwemikong Unceded Territory, who spoke with students about teachings on smudging, regalia and the importance of clean water. The students also learned about the work of fourteen-year-old Autumn Peltier — a youth advocate and water protector — and were moved by her tireless efforts as a young activist.
