Project Sunset began as a pilot program at Crossroads School in January 2016. Since then, students have had many opportunities to participate in in-school, after-school and out-of-school programming that empowers children and inspires change.
Through participation by choice students have taken part in community service activities, have learned about aboriginal art and culture, and have had opportunities to develop trusting relationships with adults.
The Project is now being offered to 55 students in grades 5-8. Some activities that the students have participated in are:
- Canoe trip to Quetico Provincial Park
- Ice fishing and fish netting with elders from Naicatchewenin First Nation
- Cultural experiences at Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre
- Learning how to Snowshoe
- Beautification of Crossroads School by planting flower and vegetable gardens
- Medicine Walk and Outdoor Orienteering at Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre
