Interpretative Panels Project at Dorothy Peacock

October 10, 2018

McGlughan Park is just across from Dorothy Peacock Elementary and includes a bridge over the ravine as the path winds its way through the trees toward Gordon Greenwood Elementary. Students at DPE, under the guidance of Grade 4 Teacher Victoria Woelders, in partnership with Vaness Spearn, Chris Marshall and other Township stakeholders, created the Interpretative Panels initiative. Students spent time learning about the ravine – the plants, the animals and insects. Also, with the inclusion of nature walks and the work of Aboriginal Support Workers and presenters, students learned about the significance of the flora and fauna to Aboriginal culture. The plaques included work from the students and will serve as a permanent display on the ravine bridge for all to enjoy. Families and representatives from the Township, School District and the Aboriginal Program and Kwantlen First Nation joined DPE students on the bridge for the plaque unveiling on October 4th.
