Truth and Reconciliation Escape Room Kits

The Multicultural group at Montmartre School recently received a grant from the Be Kind Online program to design and build two Truth and Reconciliation Escape Room kits. The project has had a profound impact on the students involved, with the group’s coordinator witnessing their growth in confidence, pride, and engagement.

The escape room kit consists of seven puzzles, each covering a topic related to Indigenous history and culture, such as residential schools, missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and the 94 calls to action. Each puzzle includes a teaching piece, a clue burned on leather, and a box locked with a wooden disc representing one of the seven grandfather teachings.

The group has created two kits for the escape room, which are now available to all of Prairie Valley School Division. They also plan to showcase their project at the Treaty 4 Celebration in September.

“This project has been an incredible opportunity for the students involved, and we are grateful to the Be Kind Online program for their support,” says the adult coordinator, Nicole Dusyk.
