Metis Day: A French Immersion and Indigenous Education Collaboration
French Immersion, Cultural Activities, School-level initiative, Thompson-Okanagan Region, 2017-2018
Our French Immersion teaching team collaborated with our Indigenous Education team to offer a number of learning opportunities and events. As an example, all Grade 6 French Immersion students participated in a Metis Louis Riel day which had several stations and was co-planned between both departments.
It was a smooth and successful day with lots of smiles. Feedback from the community was very positive. It will now be an annual event.
