Vision

A school inspired by Cree values dedicated to the academic achievement of our students in a safe, harmonious and welcoming atmosphere based on mutual respect. This must be accomplished in a healthy climate of trust and cooperation to enable them to become positive members of society.


Une école, basée sur les valeurs cries, dédiée à la réussite académique de nos élèves, et ce, dans un environnement sécuritaire, harmonieux et accueillant basé sur le respect mutuel. Cela devra se réaliser dans un climat sain où règnent la confiance et la coopération pour qu’ils deviennent des membres positifs de la société.

Mission

This is your school, others have built it for you. You must make it come alive and give it a face. Its spirit will be built daily by your actions. You are not alone. You are a member of a community. You obey the rules made by the community. You accomplish every day the obligations that link us all. You are solidarity. You are responsible. To break this law is to disavow yourself. To refuse it is to exclude yourself from the community.


Cette école est ton école, d’autres l’ont bâtie pour toi. Tu dois la rendre vivante et lui donner un visage. Son esprit sera construit tous les jours par ton action. Tu la construis pour les autres. Tu n’es pas seul. Tu es membre d’une communauté. Tu obéis aux règles fixées par cette communauté. Tu accomplis chaque jour des obligations qui te lient à nous tous. Tu es solidaire. Tu es responsable. Enfreindre cette loi, c’est te désavouer. La refuser, c’est t’exclure de cette communauté.
