The First Nations room, open to all Eagle View Elementary students, is a busy and vibrant location. Here, students are able to access personal support and academic resources to work independently, in groups, or with adult support to complete homework assignments and projects in addition to studying for tests and improving study and social skills.
First Nations Programs offer enhancement programs to all students of Aboriginal Ancestry; First Nations, Inuit and Metis. In addition, First Nations Programs also provide additional opportunities for all schools and for all students to enhance their understanding of Aboriginal culture and communities.
We have transformed our new classroom across from the Learning Commons into an inviting and exciting space for our students to learn during their scheduled time..
During class time, the First Nations Education Assistants may be found here in the room supporting one or more students, or they may providing support to students and staff in out in the classrooms. There are some First Nations’ content books available, as well as many Aboriginal stories and reference books available next door in the Learning Commons.
Please come and meet our staff – Mr. Harold Nelson, Mrs. Bea Wadhams, Ms. Crystal Walkus, and Ms. Pauline Johnson.
Supported by Breakfast for Learning, Harvest Food Bank, and individual sponsors, we believe a healthy lifestyle includes following the Canada Food Guide to promote learning for life.
