We offer students a Project Based model that weaves hands on learning and First Nations, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) traditions into the curriculum. This model, supported by a series of grants, exposes students to digital photography, design studies, sublimation, fashion/textiles, foods, construction, art studies and fitness. These courses are facilitated within the school and in community facilities as a way to enhance the quality of learning and engage students. The school and the MD of the Opportunity are working together to develop a seamless learning campus that extends into the evenings and weekends.
This partnership has led to projects such as creating Cree pocket guides, archiving local history, designing mugs and shirts incorporating the seven traditional teachings (Respect, Courage, Wisdom, Love, Truth, Honesty and Humility), learning how to cook cultural foods and sew skirts, shirts and feast bags. All of these projects are connected to Social Studies, Language Arts, Math and Science outcomes.
