Cultural Enhancement Programs

The Burnaby School District 41, Elementary Aboriginal Circle Program is made available to all students (K – 7) self identified as Aboriginal on their school registration form. In the Elementary Aboriginal Circle Program, students have an opportunity to learn about the diverse history, cultural traditions and contemporary realities of Aboriginal people across Canada. Cultural lessons are taught using a variety of printed/visual resources, where students learn through languages, ceremonies, stories, music, games, arts and crafts, and land based experiences. Using Aboriginal knowledge as a foundation, the priority is for children to know and value ‘who they are’ and ‘where they come from’.
