Reconciliation Through Education at OES
Posted on September 22nd, 2017
Onoway Elementary School was pleased to be able to offer the Kairos Blanket Exercise to our Grade 7 students on September 21st, 2017. The Blanket Exercise is an experiential teaching tool for grades 4 – 12 students and adults that will help our students understand the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, how this relationship has been damaged over the years, and how they can work toward reconciliation. We would like to thank the Aboriginal Liason from Onoway Jr./Sr. High School who partnered to bring this presentation to our students. They have agreed to come back in the spring to provide a similar opportunity for our Grade 5 class!
