Description

The University of Guelph-Humber Early Childhood Studies students are partnering with the Woodland Cultural Centre to raise funds to restore the former residential school building, turning it into a site of education and remembrance, and to experience the stories that the building holds.

The money we raise from selling t-shirts ($20/t-shirt) will go directly to Save the Evidence campaign at Woodland Cultural Centre.

Join us for the Blanket Exercise
This year, on September 30 from 9:30-1:00 ECS students at the University of Guelph-Humber are invited to deepen their awareness and learning of the Truth and Reconciliation.

Meeting Spot

Students are required to write a reflection of their learning on the day’s events and the impact their learning has on their role as a citizen and as an educator. Consider how the learning from the day could be brought into your unique placement site. These reflections are to be submitted to your placement course instructor.
