Walk for Wenjack

Bertrun E. Glavin School
October 22, 2021

Walk for Wenjack.jpgGrade 5 students at Bertrun E. Glavin School engaged in learning the story of Chanie Wenjack, who died escaping Cecilia Jeffrey Residential School in an attempt to walk 600 km home to his family.

Students wrote letters to Chanie’s family, created artwork to share his story, and participated in a “Walk for Wenjack,” walking 4.4 km to raise awareness of residential schools and their lasting impact. 

Students are passionate about learning and sharing these difficult truths.
