The Mountain View School Division has been participating in the provinces Elders and Knowledge Keepers in Schools Initiative since December. Today, the provincial government announced an additional $1.6 Million investment to expand and continue the program.
Students at MacKenzie Middle School, the DRCSS, and Whitmore School have been participating in the program. Carole Shankaruk, the Indigenous Education Facilitator for MVSD is so excited to see the program continue.
Elder Bev Harvey is Mountain View School Divisions, Divisional Elder, and she's in our buildings every week, so just knowing that we're going to have funding to continue to have that support is huge for all our communities.
This year's program wraps up on May 10th, with a closing feast and round dance at Whitmore school.
