The Courage Canoe
On Thursday, June 19th, in a special ceremony at Linklater Public School, the Courage Canoe was launched. Built by intermediate and secondary students at Gananoque Intermediate School, under the guidance of master canoe builders Chuck and Janet Cammanda, to recognize GISS student and cancer survivor McKenna Modler, in whose honour the craft was dedicated.
The 12-foot birch bark canoe was made as part of a practical native studies project led by teachers Dion Running and Tim Alguire. The students not only built the large birch bark canoe, but constructed 13 smaller, three-foot-long versions. Three of the canoes were distributed as gifts to guests at the ceremony, including Modler.
For more information, amazing pictures and to follow the student's process through this project, check out the GISS site - Courage Canoe http://vlc.ucdsb.ca/content.php?pid=590880&sid=4885598 .
Congratulations! What an amazing experience and achievement!
