Seven Oaks School Division believes that communities are more sustainable and mutually beneficial when we build upon relationships and responsibility to one another. We recognize that everyone in SOSD can benefit from Indigenous education as it can enrich the experiences of all learners.
Indigenous peoples have been largely unacknowledged in our traditional education system – an oversight that has contributed to some misinformation and misinformed opinions. By incorporating authentic learning of and with Indigenous peoples and cultures, we can form a collective identity that honours both our individual histories and those of Indigenous peoples and all our relations.
We have created a number of initiatives that serve to build bridges and create a stronger foundation for our children to emerge from with pride, knowledge, confidence and connectedness to people, place and history.
We are also committed to provide chances for our staff to engage in professional dialogue around Indigenous education topics and many of our teachers have also completed Treaty Education Training.
