For the school year 2013-2014, we had 573 students. Our schools offer Pre-kindergarten to Grade 4 at EAWMES and Grade 5 to Secondary 5 classes at EWS with three sectors, Cree, English and French. The language of instruction is Cree and is taught from Pre-K to Secondary 5. English (Second Language) is taught from Grade 1 to Secondary 5. Every school follows the GVC (Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum).


Cree Programs in Education Services supports our Cree language of instruction program by producing instructional texts and materials.

SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT / Énoncé de la mission

This is your school, others have built it for you. You must make it come alive and give it a face. Its spirit will be built daily by your actions. You are not alone. You are a member of a community. You obey the rules made by the community. You accomplish every day the obligations that link us all. You are solidarity. You are responsible. To break this law is to disavow yourself. To refuse it is to exclude yourself from the community.


Cette école est ton école, d’autres l’ont bâtie pour toi. Tu dois la rendre vivante et lui donner un visage. Son esprit sera construit tous les jours par ton action. Tu la construis pour les autres. Tu n’es pas seul. Tu es membre d’une communauté. Tu obéis aux règles fixées par cette communauté. Tu accomplis chaque jour des obligations qui te lient à nous tous. Tu es solidaire. Tu es responsable. Enfreindre cette loi, c’est te désavouer. La refuser, c’est t’exclure de cette communauté.
