In partnership with the Essa Public Library, staff and students at Nottawasaga Pines SS (NPSS) and Simcoe County District School Board’s (SCDSB) Indigenous Education department have created a Truth and Reconciliation Heart Garden at the school. Planning and development of the garden was a year-long project which will culminate in the unveiling on Sept. 29. 

What: Truth and Reconciliation Heart Garden Unveiling
Where: Nottawasaga Pines S.S., 8505 County Road 10, Angus  
When: Thursday, Sept. 29, 9:30 to 10 a.m.

The project includes the installation of two eight-foot stainless steel feathers on the outside walls of the school and planting of ‘hearts’ in the community garden. The hearts display was created by NPSS students and local community members in recognition of residential school survivors and victims.

Members of the media and other attendees are invited to wear an orange shirt.
