Happy National Indigenous Peoples Day! Today we celebrate the achievements, heritage and cultures of Indigenous peoples across Canada. It is in this spirit, that we would like share and celebrate the accomplishments of the Grade 8 students at W̱SÁNEĆ School in Saanichton.
Over the last few months, our Skills Ready colleague, Dean Heron, was welcomed by community members and elders to share knowledge of traditional carving, design and safe tool use with the students.
Yesterday a celebration was held to showcase the wonderful pieces that the students had designed and created. We are grateful that they shared their time with us. Híswke!
