First Nation, Métis and Inuit Program

Throughout Sturgeon Public Schools, we work very hard to create safe, caring and inclusive learning environments. Our schools work with parents and community members to implement innovative programs and strategies that support the success of First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) students, and benefit the entire school community.

In fact, studies have shown that Sturgeon Public School’s FNMI students meet or outperform the provincial standard in all measures outlined in the Accountability Pillar Summary.

Our schools offer a variety of FNMI programs and support services including:

  • Smaller class sizes
  • Elder support
  • Diversity Week/Day focusing on FNMI cultures and heritage
  • Smudges
  • Drumming and Beading Classes
  • Liaison/Success coaching (Sturgeon Composite High School)
  • Various events (i.e. inviting Elders and First Nations authors to work with students)
  • Partnerships with community organizations such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters to reach out to FNMI students
