Aboriginal cultural education is woven into lesson plans and learning activities for all students.
If your child has First Nations, Métis or Inuit ancestry, the school district has a number of Aboriginal programs and services available.
Aboriginal Leadership Programs
Offered throughout the school district, these programs honour and acknowledge the First Nations communities on whose land we work together to celebrate identity and diversity. Aboriginal Leadership provides an access point for all students to build their leadership skills where Aboriginal history, culture, and identity is acknowledged and celebrated.
Aya7ayulh Chet (Cultural Journeys) is a Kindergarten to Grade 6 program of choice guided by the principle that all learning is grounded in understanding the connected relationship of Language, Land and Culture. In this program, students learn to respect a shared worldview of environmental livability and sustainability related to their physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual learning.
