Lloydminster schools get funding for Truth & Reconciliation

Both school divisions in Lloydminster are getting $5,000 each to support Truth and Reconciliation programs.

This as the Saskatchewan government is disbursing $140,000 across the province for similar programs in all school divisions.

The government release indicates that the Lloydminster Catholic School Division will team up with Onion Lake First Nation to enhance the Mother Teresa (Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 2) outdoor space to include an early childhood point of view of truth and reconciliation. This project will provide a visual portrayal and awareness to foster a true early childhood approach to learning.

The Lloydminster Public School Division will work with local Indigenous communities including Onion Lake First Nation, Frog Lake First Nation, Thunderchild First Nation and Fishing Lake Metis Settlement to offer perspectives on Indigenous topics, according to provincial officials.
