Principal's Message

Tansi,

At amiskwaciy Academy students are at the centre of our initiatives. What we plan for, work for and strive for is to create a community of forward thinkers and positive change. Having a full time Elder is a blessing for our school and our community.  Students become aware of the Cree culture through the Morning Song, Traditional Teachings, and our Sweats. We work hard at giving our students the tools to become a productive member of our society through the world of work or post-secondary education. As a community we work to remove barriers that would impede forward progress for our students. Please stop in and join us for breakfast followed by Morning Song at  9:15 am daily.

hiy hiy,

Fred Hines
Principal
