Je l'ai appris à Le Pas

Je l'ai appris à Le Pas hats went home with our French Immersion students this week. They are a reminder of the things that we have learned and experienced, in French, in The Pas, and a sign of the community we are building. Merci à les Éducatrices et éducateurs francophones du Manitoba - ÉFM, as well as all of those who support KSD's French Immersion projects and events. These casquettes and chapeaux de mémère were possible thanks to you, and we'll wear them with pride! Don't forget to write your child's name in their hat!

Land Base Camp with French Exchange and Middle School Students

The camp was held on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.  We had 38 students in total and six adults from French Immersion join us.  Half of them were exchange students from Quebec the other half were from Scott Bateman. The weather wasn’t great but we managed in the rain.

We started the day off by having the students learn about our land base site. Gave them information what we do at the site, whose space it is and how we learn Indigenous way of life at the camps.   We did introductions.  We had Diane Buck showing how to make goose soup over the fire.  Myrna made bison and potatoes over the fire and fried Bannock with students in the tent.  We also had deer meat, potatoes and a variety of veggies for our lunch feast.

We had Andrea Whaley helping in the kitchen with veggies, and cutting and preparing with students.  Serving food and helping keep everything clean and organized.

In the KSD tent, we had Margaret and Dan Head-Steppan doing drum teachings and animal teachings with the students.  In the large tipi, we had Clinton Whitehead doing medicinal plant teachings. The students rotated between the two stations. We had six students help with cooking the feast in the big tent.

It was raining and the original plan was to do half go fishing at the river and half do the stations, then switch. But only a couple of students went fishing.  One student caught a pickerel and one of the chaperones cleaned it and they bought it back to the site and Diane Buck prepared it over the fire for him to eat. He was pretty happy about that.

We then had a feast together at lunchtime. There was not much food left at the end. I am glad they tried the traditional foods that were prepared. Overall it was a good day, the students were well behaved and didn’t seem to mind the rain too much.

We wish to inform the community that our flag will be flown at half-mast from June 3rd to 7th as a mark of respect and mourning for the recent passing of Mr. Murray Harvey.

Mr. Harvey was a cherished veteran and a beacon of peace and education within our community. His tireless efforts with the students and staff of Opasquia School to develop the school’s peacekeeping program have left a profound impact. His dedication to this cause is remembered with deep gratitude and serves as an inspiration to us all.

We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Mr. Harvey’s family and friends during this difficult time.
