About Nemaska

The name Nemaska means "Place to fish." With a population of almost 1,000 people, Nemaska is nestled on the shore of Lake Champlain. Like some other Cree communities in the territory, Nemaska was not always located where it is today. In 1970, the people of Old Nemaska relocated to the current site to avoid being flooded by the rerouting of waterways for hydro-electric developments.

History of Education in Nemaska

The school was named after a well-respected Elder who was an inspiration to all and who lived to be 114. The shape of the school represents a fish; fishing has sustained the people of Nemaska for generations. 

The language of instruction is Cree and is taught from pre-K to Secondary V. English is taught from Grade 1 to Secondary V. Every school follows the GVC (Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum).
