Aboriginal Inquiry: Lifting All Learners

4.2 Vision

Situated within this vast yet sparsely populated area of the province, the Arrow Lakes school district has committed to ensuring that its official vision is reflective of both its population and its location. As its website indicates, the district promises to “provide all students with an equal opportunity to achieve academic excellence to the utmost of their abilities, to learn to manage change, to learn to live and work in harmony with others and their environment and thus to grow into caring, intelligent and productive citizens.” The district clearly values both its local context and the role its students will play in the larger world as it aims to deliver “global education in a rural setting.”
