Improving the level of support and educational outcomes for First Nations students, staff and parents within our community and in our public school system sectors. Our mission is to advocate and provide culturally oriented learning environment that fosters a positive self-identity and lifelong success for our students from early childhood education years through Kindergarten to grade 12. We maintain our commitment in building relationships with our educational partners.
“Our students need us to create safe learning environments for them to grow and prosper into successfully learners. They need schools and spaces that celebrate who we are as L’nu and a Mi’kmaq Nation, and acknowledge the resilience of their people. Provide opportunities for them to connect to the land and feel included in their educational experience”
