Clay Mural of Hope

Thirty French and English elementary students from the EMSB’s Gerald McShane and École Jules Verne of La Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l'Ile (CSPI) formally unveiled a clay mural they have been working on since last fall at the Maison culturelle et communautaire de Montréal-Nord. During their work together the students discussed values of community and friendship. As these ideas took clear shape in their minds, they were transformed into clay. The project aims to bring together the students from the mostly Italian English community and the mostly French Haitian black community to get to know each other, bond, and build relationships.
