At École Lac des Bois we work hand in hand with School District 57's Aboriginal Education Department to provide our students with an inclusive environment in which they connect with the First People's culture, lore, and history. Our Aboriginal Education workers strive to provide a student-centered model of service that covers all aspects of a child's development.
Schoool District No.57 Policy on Aboriginal Education
"Aboriginal education" is the incorporation of Aboriginal perspectives and philosophies in all currciular areas to inform all students of the past and contemporary lifestyles, indigenous knowledge and histories of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada.
Meet our Aboriginal Education Worker
Hello. My name is Amber Desjarlais and I am the full-time Aboriginal Education worker for École Lac des Bois. This is my first year working for School District 57. This program will be all inclusive, so that all students will learn about Aboriginal peoples, including First Nations, Metis, and Inuit.
My goal is to provide a program where students, parents, extended family, and staff are welcome to share our culture.
