In the legacy of Truth and Reconciliation, Byrne Creek Community School was one of eight locations in British Columbia that registered a Heart Garden.
What is a Heart Garden? As explained on the First Nations Caring Society website (http://www.fncaringsociety.com/honouring-memories-planting-dreams), “The idea behind the Heart Gardens is to honour children lost to the Indian Residential School (IRS) system. Create your own heart and decorate it in your own way to honour those lost to the IRS along with why reconciliation is important to you.”
This project is a collaborative one involving the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society, KAIROS and Project of Heart. Ms. Moulin’s Graphics 11/12 class along with Ms. McLeod’s Art classes created hearts for the Heart Garden that was unveiled June 3rd when Ms. Taylor-Gibbs’ class released their butterflies in the garden to the beat of traditional drumming. Ms. McLeod’s students even had some of their hearts taken to the national Heart Garden in Ottawa at Rideau Hall!
