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.
