St. Eugene Trip

Wildflower Creston Grades 2 to 7 and a few students from HomeLinks took part in an EbEd field trip to St.Eugene Residential School near Cranbrook. Students have been learning about the preservation of history, culture and identity of Indigenous people and were able to take part in this informative tour of the building and grounds. Students took a tour of the once Residential School from a previous student of St.Eugene which allowed the class to have a great firsthand account of what it was like to attend a Residential School. The second part of the tour was a journey through the 10000-year history of the Indigenous people of the area and then followed by a few videos of the hardships that students endured when they attended Residential Schools. The trip was very informative for the class as they were able to extend their knowledge through visual descriptions, questioning and exploration of St.Eugene. Thank you to St.Eugene for such a great experience!
