Unveiled doors reveal nature, caring, dreaming and ... love/Zaagidwin

As they headed into March Break, the students of G. C. Huston public school in Southampton held their monthly 'Bimaadzwin'/Good Path Spirit assembly.

As in past months, the assembly featured the unveiling of artistically changed classroom doors. Each door, painted by students, becomes a mural that is based on one of the seven Grandfather teachings. So far, the doors have featured 'Nbaakaawin/Wisdom', 'Minaadendmowin/Respect' and 'Aakdehewin/Bravery'.  There were two doors this month that will lead into the Kindergarten rooms and that were based on 'Zaagidwin' or Love.
