Educational Services
First Nations, Métis and Inuit Support Workers

The First Nations, Métis and Inuit Support Workers are critical members of the learning teams in our schools. They help to support our students and their families. In addition, they also work with the staff in our schools to help develop understanding of history and traditions. It is important to us to celebrate the culture of our First Nations, Métis and Inuit students.

Our support workers plan and facilitate many presentations in our schools including visits by elders which we consider to be a critical part of our learning. They also work with our students to pass on the Blackfoot language and organize school clubs to teach beading, drumming, and dancing. Each year, the team plans wonderful Heritage Day events and cultural celebrations including Pow Wows. Our graduating First Nations students participate in a traditional Feather Blessing ceremony and our graduating Métis students are presented with a Métis sash. We also hold an annual Awards Ceremony for our junior and senior high school students.

For more information, please contact the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Support Worker in your child's school.
