Ojibway Language Facilitators

Kim Sandy-Kasprick infographic for her role as Ojibway Language Facilitator

At Kenora Catholic, we believe the Ojibway language is a gift, and we recognize it's essential that we help keep the Ojibway language alive and thriving in our Treaty #3 area. We also realize that it's challenging to find Ontario College of Teachers, certified teachers, who are fluent in the Ojibway language. That's why we've taken a proactive approach and hired two Ojibway Language Facilitators who are fluent in the language to work alongside a qualified teacher to plan and teach the Ojibway language. The Ojibway Language Facilitators work from St. Louis School and Pope John Paul II School.

The Ojibway Language Facilitator program started in 2018 and is similar to how early childhood educators and kindergarten teachers work together to plan and deliver the curriculum.

The Ojibway Language program is offered at St. Louis School, Pope John Paul II School and St. Thomas Aquinas High School.
