Aboriginal Education


Our Home school coordinators are:  Mrs. Pierre, Mrs. Antoine

Home school coordinators are proactive members of the school staff who support the educational program and services of Aboriginal students and assist teachers and parent/guardians to increase and promote student success by advocating for students and the school.

They act as a positive Aboriginal role model for students and promote pride in Aboriginal culture.  Home school coordinators function as a member of the school-based team and participate in team meetings regarding progress and placement of students.  They also work and consult with teachers and parents to discuss the social, emotional and academic progress of all Aboriginal students on a regular basis.

We also receive support from Nak'azdli and Tl'az'ten Education Coordinators who visit our school on a weekly basis and stay in close contact with their students and FSJSS administration and staff.
