Congratulations to the James Bay Eeyou Student, Tashvit Verma, who won first place for this year's Expo-Sciences Autochtone and was automatically selected for the Canada-Wide Science Fair for his science project "Learning Analyzer: A Fortran Code." Good luck at Nationals!
Our 2021 Regional Science Fair was organized as our first virtual science fair this year! The Waapihtiiwewan School hosted the regional event that took place on February 23 & 26. Students across Eeyou Istchee were invited to submit their science projects by video.
Several years ago, the Cree School Board began planning to improve digital literacy and learning technologies in concert with Quebec’s Digital Action Plan for Education. Student laptops, accounts, and an eventual department for e-learning was a long-term vision for the CSB. However, COVID-19 school closures changed what was once a gradual, decade-long strategy into a sprint to digital readiness.
Pink Shirt Day happened on February 24, 2021, and it was a day where Cree School Board students and employees took a stand against harassment and bullying in our schools, workplaces, homes and online. Pink Shirt Day has shown the importance of supporting each other, especially for those who need it. Here are a few things our students and employees participated for the anti-bullying campaign in their schools.
A highly educated community in which individuals are competent, productive, persevering and positive.
Une communauté grandement éduquée où les membres sont compétents, productifs, persévérants et positifs.
To provide an inspiring and culturally relevant, quality education in a safe learning community ensuring that each student becomes a successful contributor to society.
De fournir une éducation inspirante de qualité, culturellement orientée dans une communauté d’apprentissage sécuritaire où chaque élève contribuera avec succès à la société.
