In and Beyond the Classroom

Wild Rose School Division Aboriginal Studies Classes 
acknowledges and thanks 
Weyerhaeuser Canada for their support

Following the directive of ‘Not About Us, Without Us’, the experiential learning project known as IN & BEYOND THE CLASSROOM for Indigenous Studies' has been created to offer Indigenous Studies to select high schools interested in connecting schools to Indigenous Knowledge Holders and Culture Carriers. The goal of the project is to learn from lived experiences, not textbooks.   West Central High School in Rocky Mountain House and Frank Maddock High School in Drayton Valley were selected from Wild Rose School Division and are already offering this program to its students. Weyerhaeuser Timberlands has generously sponsored this program and has set a 5-year commitment, in honor of reconciliation. 

IN & BEYOND THE CLASSROOM offers support through educational coaching, classroom resources, professional development, field trips, community connections, and funds for experiential learning opportunities by Indigenous experts!  Educator Alison Struth of Inoqom Education supports these programs alongside the classroom teachers, incorporating the lens of land-based education using our backyard forests. It is in gratitude that Wild Rose School Division acknowledges and thanks Weyerhaeuser and Ms Struth for this support.

'With awareness comes appreciation, with appreciation comes allyship, and being an ally leads to reconciliation'
