Putting Thoughts to Canvas

On Sunday, April 15, students from Hammarskjold High School, Superior Collegiate and Vocational Institute, Sir Winston Churchill Collegiate and Vocational Institute and Westgate Collegiate and Vocational Institute joined forces to create four amazing paintings.

The theme was Reconciliation and their art has incorporated the written thoughts about reconciliation from community members and nearly 100 Lakehead Public Schools staff within the circles on each piece.

The four 2’ x 4’ canvases will be publicly unveiled at a Lakehead Public Schools community event on Tuesday, May 1st.
