We are so excited for today! A huge thank you to Knowledge Keeper, Shane Cunning​ham and Constable Don from the Calgary Police along with our incredible staff, who helped us raise our Tipi early this morning. The children are going to have an amazing day drumming, singing, telling and hearing stories all in our incredible Niitsitapi Tipi.

To acknowledge and support the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, we have listened to our school community and would like to share an action that the we will continue take on to advance Truth and Reconciliation.​​​​NLC School Community TRC Comittment (Fillable)[2][1].pdf


In recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day,

and in alignment with the CBE Education Plan,

Niitsitapi Learning Centre

acknowledges and supports the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action, and makes the following commitment to action for the 2021-2022 school year:

Strengthen our knowledge of Indigenous languages and support opportunities for regular practice with students that respects the traditional territory we are on, and the diverse Indigenous population that attends Niitsitapi Learning Centre.

In making our commitment, Call to Action #14 offered inspiration.
