Indigenous Education (FNMI)

FNMIThe Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board is committed to improving its educational programs, services and resources in order to ensure that the unique strengths and needs of all students are met, including students with First Nation, Métis and Inuit ancestry.

We invite Indigenous students and their families to tell us, voluntarily and confidentially, if they are of Indigenous descent.  This is part of a long-term initiative to improve the cultural competency of First Nation, Métis and Inuit cultures, histories, perspectives and traditions.  Our goal is to improve student achievement among First Nation, Métis and Inuit populations and to provide varied opportunities for staff and students to enhance cultural competency and respect for diversity.

Through our self-identification policy, First Nation, Métis and Inuit programming, and partnerships with various Indigenous communities and organizations, our understanding of how to best support our First Nations, Métis and Inuit students continues to grow.
