This year, Aboriginal Initiatives include:
Local artists, Derek and Naomi of Tribal Visions have piloted a presentation with the grade 3 and 6 students at St. Patrick School, Brantford and Sacred Heart School, Paris. The Curriculum expectations covered Grade 3 Early Settlements and Grade 6 First Nations People. The pilot has been extended to all Grade 3 students in Brant County as well at St. Joseph’s School in Norfolk County.
At the secondary level, Tribal Visions are presenting to the entire student body at Assumption College and St. John’s College. The Curriculum expectations covered Native Studies and World Studies. Naomi and Derek will also present the Voluntary Self-Identification Brochure to all students in Grade 9 to 12.
Administrators at Assumption College working with teacher Carla DiFelice have developed four Native Studies Courses to be offered to students at Assumption College in September 2014.
