Northern Studies

Students enjoy dog sledding

Through our Northern Studies Program students get to explore traditions and activities of First Nation, Métis and Inuit people of our region with hands-on learning opportunities. The program is a collaboration between St. John School and neighbouring First Nation communities. The program helps develop an understanding of the cultural significance in our area while learning the basics of the Ojibway language. Overall, it helps to shape and build bonds and relationships with all peoples of all nations.

All students in Grade 4-5 are involved in the Northern Studies Program. Students learn language and culture through jigging, beading, drumming, traditional story-telling, dogsledding, ice fishing, Spring and Fall traditional feasts, pow wows and more.
