Education

Vision Statement

Our vision at Muscowpetung Educational Centre is to provide the educational supports needed by our students now, so they will be able to compete and be functioning members of society.

In our Saulteaux/Anishinabe culture, families are fundamental to the success of all children. Within the family circle all members have a role in the nurturing of our children.

To develop a positive self-identity children must be taught their language, heritage and history. Family and Elder’s teachings prepare them for life’s challenges in today’s modern society, grounded in the richness of our culture.

Our ancestors believe each child is a gift from the Creator to care and provide for, nurture, love and above all respect, cherish and honor for all time. Our commitment to our young people is to pass on the legacy of a proud heritage, secure in their knowledge of contributions of our Saulteaux/Anishinabe Culture. With this support our children will develop and maintain a strong educational foundation.

We honor our community with a nurturing, caring and supportive learning environment. For this we strive in our professional capacities as educators.

Mission Statement

Our school maintains a philosophy of inclusion, with the goal of full-time integration of any child, who may not be experiencing 100% involvement in their regular classroom. Our mission is to provide children with guidance and support in making positive choices not only within the context and setting of the school, but also within the greater community. Our students are encouraged to use the Circle of Courage, focusing on four values:

  • Generosity
  • Belonging
  • Mastery
  • Independence

We view parents and families as essential partners in the education of our students. We encourage our parents to be involved in classroom and school activities. Working together, we can develop a school where we all feel safe and valued, growing together in an atmosphere of support and mutual respect.
