Summer Learning Program
Cross Country Skiing
Our ideal location on Lawrence’s Creek allows us a beautiful landscape to take our students out cross country skiing throughout the winter months. Not only is this excellent exercise but it helps create a love of the outdoors for years to come! All grades are able to participate in this wonderful activity.
We offer swim lessons to all students from grades JK-6. This program is ran through the Kenora Recreation Centre and happens in two week intervals throughout the school year. Because of our geographical location of being surrounded by water we are pleased to offer this program to all of our students.
Native Second Language
We offer Native second language in Ojibwe as an option to families of students in grades 4, 5, and 6. Our teacher Mrs. Derouard is able to share her own learnings with the students as they develop their Ojibwe speaking and learning of the variety of indigenous cultures in our area.
French as a Second Language
We offer French as a second language to students in grades 4, 5, and 6. Our teacher Mr. Craig helps students learn this second language through gestures while building up their language skills in communicating with them in French throughout their French learning block.
Students are able to come together to share their love of music in our Primary Choir that is ran by Mr. Kaldeway on the piano. This is a time for students to play small instruments such as bells, shakers and more while singing along to some of their favourite songs.
