Beginning this year, the federal government declared September 30th as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day was also referred to as Orange Shirt Day.
The Cree School Board started the day with a commemoration of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Thursday, September 30, 2021 in front of their Head Office.
After many years of service, the Cree School Board honoured retirees from last year and this year. Chairperson Dr. Sarah Pash acknowledged the retired employees on social media.
“CONGRATULATIONS!” said the Chairperson, “For today, I want to say thank you for everything you have done. You have worked tirelessly to ensure that our language remains a priority, that our culture and traditions have a place in our education system, that we continue to develop and produce our own teachers.”
We are excited to highlight two new school logos! The Wabannutao Eeyou School and Jolina Gull Blacksmith Memorial School launched their new logos this spring.
Each school unveiled their logos in their communities, with students, parents, and community members in attendance.
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.
