"Elders in the Classroom" at St. Bernadette


December 2, 2011 - St. Bernadette students Sydney Cimino, Grade 5 and Shaeleigh Wisniewski, Grade 6 show off their colourful and intricate replica headdresses that they created at school with the aid of Winnie Pitawanakwat a Community Elder and Native Teachings Facilitator, and her husband, Bill. Through the Elders in the Schools Project, Winnie shared the teachings and traditions around the headdress with the students before they began the process of creating their own.
