Across the province, First Nations students young and old are celebrating their accomplishments as the Class of 2014.
While we can’t cover every event, we will offer a snapshot of the kinds of successes that have taken place in our communities, with photos in our gallery to come.
One of the programs MFNERC facilitates is Seeds of Empathy. Through this program, a baby with his or her mother visits a daycare once a month so the children can learn from watching the baby grow. Recently, Little Saskatchewan’s Daycare completed the program and held a year-end celebration. Baby Evan (the “teacher” during the year) was on hand for cake and presents.
Another program MFNERC will soon be implementing with Peguis First Nation is Reading Recovery. MFNERC’s own Gloria Sinclair graduated as a Reading Recovery Teacher Training Leader and will help to train First Nations teachers in this amazing program.
Approximately 15 people graduated from the educational assistant program that MFNERC helps facilitate along with UCN. These graduates are trained to assist students with lessons under direct supervision of the classroom teacher, monitor and report to the classroom teacher on student progress, and assist in the preparation of learning materials and environment.
Be sure to watch this space as we are visiting some high school graduations this week! Congratulations to the class of 2014.
