A 15-year-old student who drowned at Algonquin Park is being honoured with a plaque.

Last week, the plaque honouring Jeremiah Perry was unveiled at Jefferys Collegiate Institute. Perry drowned in July 2017 while swimming with his classmates at Big Trout Lake in Algonquin Park.

It was later found out he was one of 15 students who had failed their swimming test. Nicholas Mills, a 54-year-old teacher from Perry’s school in Toronto, has been charged with one count of criminal negligence causing death.
