Online Learning Platform

Vers Le Pacifique

Our students benefit from a program designed by the Pacific Institute to help teach young people skills in conflict resolution.  Vers le Pacifique promotes daily peaceful behaviour. 

Des livres on en mange 

Cook for Books (Des Livres, on en mange!) is an innovative program for the French sector students. A collaboration between Cree Health Board and the Cree School Board, the objectives are to increase literacy level and cooking skills through fun and hands-on workshops.

Once or twice a week, four (4) different students prepare healthy snacks with Joanie Flibotte, nutritionist from the Cree Health Board.  While the "snacks" are in the oven, Annie Loyer, remedial teacher from EAWMS, reads the students a story.  The students enjoy their snack and after, they choose a book they like from our collection and take it home with them, as a gift. We believe that in order to increase the students literacy level,  family must be involved, and having books at home is a good start.

The extra snack are put on sale for community members and the money is used to get more books for the students.

Together for Literacy

[Coming soon]

Like an Open Book

We believe in community involvement. So, to help improve our students' literacy levels, we engaged community members to model reading for our students. We wanted to show them that everyone can read, not only their teacher in the classroom: the chief is reading, the deputy chief is reading, the doctors and nurses are reading, the electricians are reading, the fireman and policeman are reading, etc. Starting as a pilot in May 2019, (Our School is) Like an Open Book was such a great success, it was repeated for the 2019-2020 school year.

Our school runs on a Response to Intervention model.  The RTI model ensures that students are meeting specific learning targets and that there are interventions/supports in place for those students struggling to meet specific targets and/or extension activities planned for those students who have already mastered the target
