Message from the Executive Director
Happy New Year! On behalf of the staff and management of the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre, it is my hope that you are well rested and had a wonderful holiday season.
Welcome to the brand new newsletter of the MFNERC, formerly known as the Principals’ Newsletter, The Arrow! We are proud to showcase a School Profiles section in each issue. This section will highlight First Nation schools who receive service delivery from the MFNERC, promote school activities and their outstanding programs.
We would also love to share with you the launch of the newly designed MFNERC website, www.mfnerc.com. Our hope is to have the website more accessible so that you are able to easily navigate and discover all the new and interesting activities the MFNERC has been up to.
With growing access to internet, MFNERC has decided to cancel the MFNERC Bi-Weekly Bulletin, which was previously faxed to schools, and be more green by sending an eNewsletter out once a month. Feel free to sign up for news and bulletins here. Past MFNERC Newsletters are also accessible on our website here.
With January here, the MFNERC specialists are busy and back in the communities. Many events are up and coming including:
- The Opaskwayak Regional Education Conference (Jan. 17-18). The theme, Looking Back – Thinking Forward: Supporting Contemporary Education with Traditions.
- The 11th Annual Science Fair (Feb. 15-16) at the Max Bell Centre, University of Manitoba.
For information on other events check out the calendar on our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I wish you all a successful year in 2013!
Lorne C. Keeper Executive Director
