Our First Nations Partners include:
Locations of Our Local CommunitiesThe relationships that the Lambton Kent District School Board has with the four First Nation communities pre-date by many years the current period of collaboration and partnership that started anew in the fall of 2007 with the establishment of a committee and the beginning of an important link and an ongoing dialogue. The focus of the group’s work has been to raise awareness, grow understanding, and engage active support toward improving academic and other outcomes for First Nation, Metis, and Inuit students who are served by schools in Lambton Kent. The committee has also invested in efforts to help everyone – staff, students, and broader community – learn more about the cultures, histories, perspectives, and teachings of our First Nation friends. It is through this greater understanding that the process of reconciliation can occur and genuine respect and appreciation can grow.
