Roseau River Anishinabe First Nation

IMG_2798In 2011, under a three-year partnership and initiated as a pilot project, Ginew School on the Roseau River Anishinabe First Nation (RRAFN) became the first school that MFNERC assumed administrative responsibility for. For the past number of years we have worked with RRAFN and INAC to support development and implementation of a school success plan, focusing on student achievement in the areas of literacy, numeracy, and student retention. The school success plan outlines the overall objective to advance student achievement and help both MFNERC and RRAFN advance educational goals set by the community.

Ginew School offers a variety of language and culture programs for K-8, including:

  • Ojibwe Language and Culture program, classes and events
  • Elders in the School program
  • Responsive Classroom program and Circle Teachings
  • Speech and Language Therapy program

Through these programs, and other educational supports, Ginew School’s goal is to build positive identity and self-confidence in students, as well as building and enhancing relationships between the school and community.
