Our theme this year was the importance of Mother Earth. The science fair had great participation and many fascinating projects, from how to make your own clouds to a sustainable beaver dam. Great work ACEC students!
Elder’s of the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug First Nation are very involved in ACEC. Their role is key in the land-based education curriculum at ACEC, by teaching the students about preparing traditional meals and much more. Also, they prepare daily meals for our students and staff.
We will provide quality education in a safe and secure learning environment that will develop the full potential of each child and encourage the involvement of parents and the community in the school and education program
Land-based Learning provides an opportunity for students to experience “Walking in Two Worlds”. Walking in Two Worlds and Two-Eyed Seeing from Elders and other community members of Big Trout Lake.
ACEC’s student body learns about Mother Earth through the teachings of Elders. Students gain confidence in what they are capable of while learning to encourage and support others who may be of different heritage. Students of First Nations and Métis heritage learn about their own cultures and begin to truly understand their own culture, while others who may not have been knowledgeable about other cultures learn a respect for the beliefs of others.

Our sobriety walk this year was a great success. ACEC’s goal was to create awareness around chemical dependency. The enthusiasm if the students was incredible, as well as the amazing signs designed by the Grade 5 class and Ron Ballantyne. Our young people are the future of this community and country and creating awareness about drug and alcohol addiction and the problems they cause families was well heard by ACEC’s students. Way to go kids!!!
