School Story in Action 2023-2024 

 

March 8, 2024 

 

Many parts of our curriculum explore indigenous teaching and learning styles. It is often a time to learn from elders, recognizing that there is a place or certain situation for types of learning. All students had the opportunity to learn culture through dance when Métis artists, V’ni Dansi, visited. As well as learning about an indigenous culture, Métis is connected in Core French curriculum. We want to continue to recognize that indigenous cultures, while they were here before colonization, are also current, innovative and active today. 

  

This links to our School Story focus in the following way:   

Learning is experiential and relational. 

Learning recognizes the role of Indigenous knowledge. 

(First Peoples Principles of Learning)
