Message to All NNCEA Parents/Caregivers & NCN Community from NNCEA Director of Education, June 9th, 2022

Tanisi! It’s been awhile since info was shared!  The 2022-23 school year is nearly over!  The last day of school will be June 29th at 2:30 pm. This year was a bit smoother compared to the last two.

Many thanks to everyone (NCN Chief & Council, NNCEA School Board, NNCEA Administration/Staff, students/parents/caregivers, community workers, Covid -19 personnel) who have helped during this school year! All of your hard work has kept us going and safe, kinanaskomitan!

NNCEA/NCN/TFC research project:

Good news! The NNCEA/NCN/TFC research project is still underway!  Five surveys (one for gr. 4-6 students, one for gr. 7-12 students, one for former NNCEA students, one for teachers and NNCEA staff and one for the community) are now ready for circulation and for educational stakeholders to complete.  Participants need to complete only ONE of the surveys that are suitable.  An excellent chance to share your ideas on what education could be like at Nisichawayasihk in the next 40 years!

***Surveys need to be completed by midnight on Sunday, June 19th, 2022 so results can be tabulated. Once all the information is gathered, the research team will begin the final research report which will be presented at NNCEA’s Annual General Assembly on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022
