To encourage equal focus on academics and athletics, MES offers the BEAR program in collaboration with Wemindji Minor Sports.

All minor sports athletes are expected to meet BEAR (Behaviour, Effort, Attendance and Respect) expectations each and every day, both in sport and in school in order to remain eligible for league and tournament play.

Mikw Chiyâm is an interdisciplinary arts program for students in Cycles 1 through 5. We introduced it to MES in 2019-2020, bringing in artists twice during the year for three weeks each time.

The full year-long Mikw Chiyâm program will be available to eligible students beginning in the 2020-2021 school year.
