Mikw Chiyam

Mikw Chiyam is an interdisciplinary arts program for students in high school. It has been offered at JBES since 2016.

Artists from across Eeyou Istchee and around Canada work in the schools for three or six-week periods to offer  intensive creative instruction and mentorship.

Greenhouse Project

The project started as a collaboration between the school and Nihtaauchin Chisasibi Center for Sustainability. We built our Greenhouse in 2014. The project is a unique opportunity for students to gain knowledge on greenhouse vegetable production, while promoting healthy eating and food security for the north. It is currently being run by our WOTP program.
