In October, nine G. C. Huston Public School students had their art submitted by Vice-Principal Patricia Holm and Anishaabemowin teacher, Marilyn Root, for possible display at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in Toronto.
The artwork was created by Grades 7 and 8 Ojibwe students from Saugeen First Nation. The students of G. C. Huston attend the Anishaabemowin (Native Language) class taught by Marilyn Root. Using a wide variety of techniques and materials, the students completed their individual art pieces inspired by Mshkokmii-kwe (Mother Earth).
The Legislative Assembly of Ontario Public Relations Office confirmed that the artworks have been selected as part of the display in the upcoming Youth Arts Program from January to March.
The nine students and their parents are also invited to attend a reception in Toronto to celebrate their contribution to the exhibit.
