St Francis de Sales Students Learn About The Birch Bark Canoe

A  grade 1 student teacher Peter  Stranberg, arranged a birch bark canoe presentation for our students today (outdoors of course).  Students enjoyed the wonderful presentation by Mr Stranberg, along with Biologist Mark Read!  Mr Stranberg worked with Mr Read at Murphy’s Point Provincial Park and both were there when Chuck Commanda built the canoe in 2018.  Mr Commanda is a knowledge keeper who has supported Indigenous learning in our school in the past.  Miigwech to all!
