  • 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 Indigenous world view
    • Having dignity, purpose and options as measures of ‘success’ for self and students
