First Nations Education Update

Great projects all over the district. One ongoing project is with a high school teacher who is doing an integrated, cross curricular unit for ELA, social studies and Art. The idea is to research different Indigenous cultures from across Canada and develop a graphic novel/comic idea based on an Indigenous Super Hero then pitch it to Marvel! This idea was in the works at Marvel already so this group of youth will use their creativity and social justice lens’ to meet curricular outcomes in many areas!

Ongoing work of the First Nations Coalition will include learning from First Nations’ community members (Elders, Cultural Knowledge Keepers, Youth) through Circles, Ceremony, Drumming and Storytelling.

Upcoming ‘travelling supper Professional Learning’ for a group of teachers who will be attending the Jesse Wente presentation at Mount Allison on Monday, November 19th at 7pm in Crabtree Auditorium. Jesse has chosen to take a future perspective in the Speakers’ Series  and to paint a picture of a post-Reconciliation Canada.  We would like to invite you to attend this event and take the opportunity to hear Jesse speak but also to ask him questions and hear his perspective.  Jesse has been appointed the first director of Canada’s Screen Office https://www.cbc.ca/news/indigenous/jesse-wente-appointed-director-of-canada-s-new-indigenous-screen-office-1.4513124 .  and can be found on Twitter at @jessewente!

There will be a First Nations’ Guidance Professional Learning day on December 19th whereby Guidance counsellors, social workers and psychologists will be participating in the Blanket Exercise and learning about Intergenerational Trauma, Supports and Opportunities for First Nations students, Indigenous lens on Wellness and partake in a Case Study.

If you are a parent/guardian of a student who is Indigenous – reach out to the Guidance counsellor at your school to learn more about post secondary supports and opportunities.

If you have any cultural events that you would like to share with us at district – please reach out to the Subject Coordinator for First Nations Education Tracy Landry at 380-1915 or tracy.landry@nbed.nb.ca

Engineering Brightness at RHS

The Engineering Brightness students at RHS (Beth Stevens, Kaleigh Bourgeois, Megan Mersereau, Skyelar Ables, Lauren Daigle and Braeden MacDougall), along with teachers Ian Fogarty and Chris Ryan, have been and will be recognized for their work (along with the Preston Middle School from Colorado) for designing and building lights that could be used by the 1.3 billion people in the world who currently live in Light Poverty.

The group was at the World Maker Faire in New York this September, where the Engineering Brightness students were awarded with an Editor’s Choice Award. Two of the students were also quoted in the NY Times this past week.

Engineering Brightness (excerpt from NY Times):

“A group of students at Riverview High School in New Brunswick, Canada, found out that children their age around the world couldn’t do things as simple as finishing their homework at night because they didn’t have reliable electricity. And they decided to do something about it. So they designed, 3-D-printed and soldered solar-powered lights they could mail to them across the world.

“We wanted to figure out a way to cross our curriculum and actually make a purpose with the lights that we’re building for school,” said Lauren Daigle. But it didn’t stop there — they check in with the recipients regularly, and take their feedback on problems with the lights, and sometimes go back to the drawing board to fix them. “Every time we make a light, we learn something new, and then our learning helps somebody else’s learning, all the way across the world,” said Beth Stevens.”

Engineering Brightness was also recognized by the HundrED Sustainability Summit in Calabasa, California on November 1-3 as being in the top 10 projects (from over 3000 entries) for sustainability.

Most recently, Engineering Brightness has been recognized at the HundrED Innovation Summit in Helsinki, Finland on November 7-9 as being one of the top 100 projects worldwide, as well as being chosen as the representative of the top 10 sustainability inventions.

The Summits bring together the most inspiring education innovators, educators, youth and other engaged stakeholders from across the world to celebrate innovation in education on a global scale. Each year the jam-packed program is built around the innovators who will be attending and every innovator gets the opportunity to get up on stage and share their work!  It's all about sharing ideas, forging connections and building a movement.
