Alone it is difficult; Together it is possible
With Teamwork, Respect and Integrity, success is inevitable.
To create a positive learning environment that empowers life-long learners to become community leaders of tomorrow
Learning is enhanced when school, family, and community establish relationships and support of mutual goals so that students can take ownership of their learning. Successful schools build strong, collaborative school partnerships which nurture family and community involvement.
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.
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).
