Board Celebrates A.E. Bowers' Ripples of Change

An A.E. Bowers initiative, Ripples of Change aimed to enhance Gr. 4 students' understanding of Indigenous cultures and raise awareness of Truth and Reconciliation.

Trustees celebrated A.E. Bowers' Ripples of Change initiative at its Sept. 5, 2019, Board meeting. Led by Gr. 4 teacher Veronica Doyle, Ripples of Change was a year-long project which saw students engaged in authentic learning experiences surrounding the 4 A's of Reconciliation: Acknowledgement, Awareness, Atonement and Action. Through stories, artifacts, research and dialogue with Indigenous artisans and local First Nations youth, students built empathy and compassion for the histories of Indigenous People in Canada.
