Unearth our Past- Learning from Local Cemetaries

Three CLCs are participating in a project called “Unearth our Past”,  supported by Blue Metropolis.

Students from Quebec High CLC, New Carlisle CLC and Laurentian Regional CLC are visiting a local cemetery in search of buried local heroes or role models and turn the stories of these lives into short dramatic works, to be presented at local schools and in the community.4831280135

Check out some photos from Monique Dykstra – A Montreal based photographer working with the students as they work on the project.

This project is ongoing.  Next steps include writing a play based upon a grave site they visited.  Follow the progress of the project on twitter at #unearthourpast
