Online school pays visit to Port Hardy

Teaching staff will visit Port Hardy to meet with Navigate students and their families.

PORT HARDY—Teaching staff from Navigate (Powered by NIDES) and the School District 71 Aboriginal Education Department will visit Port Hardy June 11 and 12 to meet with Navigate students and their families at the Glen Lyon Inn.

Current Navigate students and their families, as well as those who want to know more about the education options available through Navigate, are welcome. In addition to offering information, there will be storytelling, a mask project, and a lunch provided by the school.

Students and parents are invited to make a mask and get to know the staff and other families in the area at an informal meet and greet on Tuesday evening, June 11, from 7-8:30 p.m. (materials are provided by Navigate).

On June 12, information sessions will start at 9 a.m., giving parents and students time to talk with staff, ask questions and learn more about the options available. A storytelling session with Suzanne Camp, an Aboriginal Cultural Support Worker from SD71, will begin at 10 a.m., with a mask making project to follow from 11 a.m.-noon. Participants are invited to stay for a complimentary lunch.

Navigate provides distributed learning to students K-12 throughout B.C. and has developed educational programs such as “Cultural Connections” that honour the history and traditions of B.C.’s First Nations. These programs help both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of First Nations culture and heritage. The school’s online courses can be accessed entirely from home or while attending another school through cross-enrollment. All students are supported in their learning by Navigate staff throughout the calendar year.

Those wanting more information about the upcoming sessions are welcome to contact Jennifer Hibbert at jennifer.hibbert@sd71.bc.ca. For more information about Navigate (Powered by NIDES) visit their website: www.navigatenides.com.
