First Nation, Métis, Inuit

First Nation, Metis, Inuit

Wild Rose School Division endeavours to deliver programming and support to First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students that will develop and support resilience as a foundation for success. Through collaborative partnerships with First Nation, Métis, Inuit and other community stakeholders our classrooms embed appropriate exposure to indigenous cultures. Wild Rose School Division is working hard to ensure First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students find an education system that values their identity and support their needs.

Incorporating First Nation, Métis and Inuit culture into WRSD is an essential part of the framework of education in our schools. When the value of Indigenous culture(s) is strengthened both within and outside the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit communities through education and experience, all of our students benefit.

Cultural Learnings are offered through a partnership with students, staff and communities to ensure all students have equitable opportunities for success.

We work with partners to:

  • Offering experiential cultural teachings to our staff to deepen their understanding and strengthen the valuing of traditional culture(s) both within and outside the First Nations, Metis, Inuit communities
  • Presenting resources to teachers to better support consistent embedding  of appropriate exposure to indigenous culture in the regular classroom
  • Strengthening the relationships with our First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities to make cultural information more widely available
  • Supporting schools who are offering cultural teachings and increasing the positive perception of Aboriginal culture.

The resources and strategies used here in Wild Rose School Division benefit all of our students by teaching an accurate understanding of Alberta's history and the importance of reconciliation between our aboriginal and non-aboriginal communities.
