If your child has First Nation, Metis or Inuit ancestry we ask you to consider self-identifying.
By doing so you help our school know if we are meeting the needs of our First Nation, Metis and Inuit students. You also assist the school board in getting additional funds to support Aboriginal Education and help us to know where to allocate resources to best support Aboriginal students.
Self-identification will also allow us to direct services and opportunities for First Nation, Metis and Inuit students to your child. These additional services and opportunities may include
- tutoring support,
- access to the board’s elementary and secondary Aboriginal programs,
- access to the Aboriginal Student Support Counsellor,
- access to leadership and university experience camps for Aboriginal students,
- information about scholarships and bursaries for Aboriginal students.
