Bilingual Ojibwe & Cree

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​                                           ​​​​​

The Winnipeg School Division is proud to initiate bilingual Cree language and Ojibwe ​language programs​​ exclusively at Isaac Brock School.

The 2016 school year welcomed students in Kindergarten, while the 2017-18 school year will have program entry points​ in Kindergarten​ and Grade 1.

In the 2017-18 school year, the Kindergarten and Grade One Cree and Ojibwe Programs will centre around ancestral teachings of the Grandmother Moon and the thirteen moons she carries. The programs have a land-based component as this is an important part of language learning. Culturally, there is a strong connection to the land and all the life it encompasses. In the ​Kindergarten Program, students will be fully  immersed in the Cree or Ojibwe language. The Grade One program will be bilingual with 50% of instruction in Cree or Ojibwe and 50% in English.

All programs will follow Provincial Curricular  Outcomes.
