Cultural Awareness

Queen Elizabeth practices cultural awareness every day. Each day students have the opportunity to smudge with Sage that was personally picked by QE Gr. 7/8 students on a field trip aimed at getting to know the land.

The basic Cree language is still being taught and shared throughout the school with students and staff.  This year the students will continue to learn to sign O’Canada in Cree (COVID protocols allowing) Character building is supported by the 7 Sacred Teachings.  Students also learn the Medicine Wheel through the teachings of Elders on how we need to live a balanced life.  Also, the Sharing Circle will allow us to discuss thoughts and ideas and to resolve conflicts.

A variety of Elders will be joining us this year to provide rich and engaging learning experiences about Indigenous culture.  Our “learning by doing’ program has seen our students engaged in a large number of activities including beading, drumming, dancing and more. 

Any parents/guardians who are interested, are welcome to join and assist in these projects/teachings. (on hold until Covid Protocols are changed)
