As Indigenous peoples of North America, the Aboriginal community has a unique relationship with Canada. Policy acknowledges their role as the First Peoples, recognizes the historic contributions of Aboriginal communities and their diverse cultures, and acknowledges the vital role that the Aboriginal communities play today and into the future. The establishment of an Aboriginal Choice School represents a unique responsibility and opportunity to promote harmonious relationships and the co-existence of Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal people alike.
All students are entitled to an education that validates, recognizes, and facilitates the revitalization of Aboriginal cultures, histories, values, and languages.
Nusdeh Yoh, “house of the future”, was chosen as our Aboriginal culture and language school name. The name selection process involved consultation with elders, parents, staff, and students. All partners desired a name that represented the hope inherent in this school to affect meaningful change in the lives of our children, families, and the greater community.
In the context of Nusdeh Yoh, student success is a holistic measure. We know that the emotional health and well being of our students is fundamental to their ability to access instruction and fully participate in their learning. Our focus on Restorative Practice is more than a philosophy of student discipline. It is an acknowledgement of the need for respectful relationships between all members of our school community and forms the foundation for a positive, welcoming school environment for all learners and participants.
Nusdeh Yoh welcomes all learners!
