Message from Executive Director

Tansi and welcome to the 2016/17 school year.

On behalf of all of us at MFNERC, I would like to welcome back all the educators and staff to the schools. I hope that you had a wonderful summer break.

With September here, many of our staff are back in the communities and busy planning the year’s workshops, consultations, resource development and other roundtables and gatherings. Here are some things to take note of as the school year gets underway:

This year’s First Nations Circle of Knowledge & Practices (FNCKP) is fast approaching and is taking place at the Victoria Inn, October 6-7, 2016. The theme is, Language Revitalization: An Elder’s Vision. The conference will consist of two days of professional development workshops with a focus on programs and activities that promote language and culture. Be sure to contact Joy Keeper, Conference Coordinator at 1-866-319-4857 or joyk@mfnerc.com should you have any questions about the FNCKP.

Once again, our hard-working special education department has a busy year planned. The needs in our schools are many and our dedicated facilitators work tirelessly to bring workshops and training to First Nations resource teachers and education assistants. For more information on our special education program please contact Margaret Scott at marscott@mfnerc.com.

You will find more information on our other programs, upcoming events and publications in this issue of The Arrow. I also invite you to check out our website or contact us at info@mfnerc.com.

From everyone at MFNERC, have a wonderful school year!

Lorne C. Keeper,
Executive Director
