Over this past year we’ve hosted, supported and partnered with various organizations and groups to offer Culture and Heritage School Outreach Programs that include: curriculum delivery, cultural teachings, drum making and mini powwow. Our planning committee met recently to begin planning for the current school year.  Interest in the program has grown since its inaugural delivery at Humber and Sacred Heart Elementary schools last year and, this year two new schools have been added to the delivery schedule.  Kevin Barnes, Vice-Chief of the Qalipu First Nation, and volunteer with the education outreach program reports, “We did our first session at C.C. Loughlin and St. Gerard’s Elementary this past Thursday, January 29.  This was the first of a six week series with those schools so the focus was on introductions, getting to know one another, and what will come in the weeks ahead.”
