 Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please see below for this week's items for "Thursday News"

  • A Message from Indigenous Education:

    The Indigenous Education Department is conducting a survey to hear the voices of the families with Indigenous ancestry to hear your thoughts for the future of Indigenous Education. This survey has 16 questions and should take approximately 10 minutes of your time. Your comments will be used to help us develop a new Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement (AEEA).

     Your name will be entered into a draw for a mini i-pad to be drawn at an upcoming community gathering on May 31, 2017. More information on this will follow shortly.

     Parent Survey

    If you would prefer to get in touch with the Indigenous Education Department at a time that is more convenient to you, please call Diane Jubinville, District VP, Indigenous Education at 604-952-5058 or email:
