Aboriginal Education Program

Hello, Way', Tawanshi, Ullaakuut,

The Indigenous Education Department in SD67 offers various supports and opportunities for students of Aboriginal ancestry.  

Our goal is to enhance educational, social, and cultural opportunities for all Indigenous students.

 Some of the optional highlights of participating in the program include: 

  • Unique cultural opportunities
  • In-class Support
  • Advocacy
  • In-school program opportunities
  • Scholarship, bursary, and post-secondary and community program opportunities

 

The Indigenous Education department employs Indigenous Educational Teachers, Support Workers, a Cultural Coordinator, and a Family Support Worker that support all students of Indigenous ancestry who are enrolled in our district.

We, Jolanda Poetsch (Indigenous Education Support Worker), Adrian Friesen (Indigenous Education Support Worker), and Meghan Cooper (Indigenous Youth and Family Support Worker) look forward to supporting all of our Indigenous students and their families in our building.  

Limlemt, Marci, Kowyanami, Thank-you,

Mrs. Poetsch, Mr. Friesen
