 Mission

"Advancing reconciliation by honoring culture, identity, and belonging through holistic education".

Land Acknowledgement

 

The High Prairie School Division would like to acknowledge that we are located within the ancestral and traditional territory of the Indigenous peoples in this area.

This land has been and will continue to be the home to the Cree, Dené, and other First Nations and to the Métis within the boundaries of Treaty 8.

We also wish to acknowledge the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today, and those who have gone before us.


Goals

1. All students will deeply understand our Canadian history, including Indigenous perspectives, treaties, land agreements, the legacy of residential schools, and the contributions of Indigenous culture in shaping our Canadian identity.

2. All staff will be supported in meeting the Teaching Quality Standard Competency 5 (TQS #5) through monthly professional development sessions designed to build the capacity of our teachers to accurately and confidently deliver Indigenous materials in their classrooms, moving future generations forward in creating a more inclusive Canada.

3. Indigenous learners will see themselves reflected in the curriculum.  Classroom content across subject areas from kindergarten to grade twelve will be respectful, authentic, and genuine, often including consultations with Elders and Knowledge Keepers.
