1. Why We Program

We support our vision of educational excellence by offering our students a wide variety of programs and services suited to individual learning needs and strengths with incredible people doing day-in day-out formidable work.

Our children receive the quality of education they deserve, a chance to perform with the top percentile in the province and sometimes internationally. Education is one of the most effective ways to move northern families out of poverty and into a brighter future. That’s why we’re focused on improving education locally, and we do this in five ways.

"...courage to continue that counts." ~Winston Churchill

First, we engaged the community. Our school functions way better and students learn more and are more themselves with our parents and other community members involved. Second, we partner with other experienced organizations to learn from their expertise and implement their good ideas in our programs. Third, we work with local ministries of education and international organizations that support teacher training so teachers have the tools they need to improve their classroom environments. Fourth, we provide technical training and offer self-directed learning opportunities for volunteer tutors during and after school. And finally we are creating locally relevant reading and learning materials so that children can learn what they need to know in their mother tongue: cree.

"I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed. ~Michael Jordan

We believe our programs make the difference in our lives simply because we stand and be counted, failing and failing against the best, anywhere they are and whoever they are and do. We will stand and be counted, always.

2. How We Program

Step One: Apply the Frontier School Board of Trustees' overall direction and strategic plan.

  • The Board of Trustees approved the current Mission Statement in February, 2008. There are several components that comprise the total document. Each of these components is important and has significance for the Division. These components are explained in the following text.

    • Step two: Yearly review of local school plans and mission statement.

After School Programming Ideas

  • After the School Bell Rings

    A Manitoba After School Recreation Project is a provincial initiative focusing on promoting and supporting increased access and opportunities for children and youth, ages 6-12 years, to engage in physical activity and healthy living practices in the critical after school time period. Grants are also available.

  • Sport Manitoba

    Sport Manitoba is the lead planning, programming and funding agency for the development of amateur sport in Manitoba. The primary focus of Sport Manitoba is on the development of athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers. We believe that sport is a healthy and positive tool to build strong and vibrant citizens and communities. Grants are also available.

  • Canadian Active After School

    Active after school is no-cost, online resource for After School Program Staff in Canada. Our goal is to promote program excellence by helping recreation practitioners create fun, inclusive and active programs for Canada's Kids!
