Indigenous Education Program

Beading Project

EIPS Priority 1 and Goal 2 emphasizes success for every student. Within this goal is the following outcome:

Outcome: Self-identified First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and English Second Language students are demonstrating growth and achievement.


At Davidson Creek Elementary School, we are committed to creating a culture of understanding and celebration of diversity with respect to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures.

This year, our program emphasized providing equitable educational opportunities for self-identified First Nations, Métis and Inuit students to promote their success. Additionally, we provide cultural opportunities for these students. Our program included Leveled Literacy Intervention, math support, Métis beading with Cheryl Devin, and animal print art lessons with Harlee McArthur.

Finally, our program promoted cultural understandings for all students through in class lessons during Métis week, First Nations Fridays, and reconciliation activities, such as the blanket exercise for all students in grade five and the Project of Heart for all grade two students.
