Seven Oaks School Division believes that communities are more sustainable and mutually beneficial when we build upon relationships and responsibility to one another to ensure all of our students benefit. We recognize that everyone in SOSD can benefit from Indigenous education as it can enrich the experiences of all learners.
We recognize that Indigenous peoples have been largely unacknowledged in our past education system which can contribute to misinformed opinions. By incorporating authentic learning of and with Indigenous peoples we can forge a rich collective identity that honours Indigenous peoples and all our relations.
In Seven Oaks School Division we have created a number of initiatives that serve to build bridges and create a stronger foundation for all our children from which they can emerge with pride, confidence and connectedness to people, place and history.
