Aboriginal Education Values

Success for All – What’s good for Aboriginal students is good for ALL students.  We believe in the following values:

  • A sense of belonging is the foundation of students’ success
  • Aboriginal identity as a source of strength within NLPS
  • Gathering strength from our past will guide our future
  • An approach to learning that is reflective of an Indigienous world view
  • Having dignity, purpose and options as measures of ‘success’ for self and students

Leaders for Learning

The Leaders for Learning Executive Group (formerly known as the Aboriginal Education Leadership Council) is made up of representatives from the three land-based First Nations: Snuneymuxw, Stz’uminus, and Snaw-Naw-As; and the Tillicum Lelum Aboriginal Friendship Centre and Mid-Island Metis Nation, along with the Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools Aboriginal Education Department.

The Group is unique, in that it is neither governed nor mandated by the NLPS Board of Education, instead it is a special partnership between local Aboriginal communities and NLPS themselves through great consultation deriving from the NLPS Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement.

The Group meet monthly to receive and discuss updates on key activities in the district and to share informaton about the communities and organizations they represent.

To learn more about the Leaders for Learning Group and their initiatives, please contact the Chair, Laura Tait, Director of Instruction.
