Under the direction of Ms. Lazarova, Textiles and Club Sponsor of Sewing for A Cause, students from grades 8 to 12 recently collaborated over a two-month period to make Windsor-themed facemasks for members of our community. On April 12, students happily gifted 25 of these facemasks to the Tsleil-Waututh Nation.
Ms. Deminger, English Teacher/Indigenous Support Teacher, delivered the facemasks to Ang George, Director of Community Development Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, at the Nation's Community Development Office. Ang, who then passed the facemasks on to their Elder Coordinator, was touched and wanted to thank everyone for the thoughtful gift.
The Windsor community—students and staff—are continuing the pathway of understanding the role they play in Truth and Reconciliation and would like to continue to collaborate with members of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation on future initiatives.
