M’CHIGEENG – Lakeview School in M’Chigeeng is expanding its Anishinaabemowin immersion program.
Ngwaaganak has expanded to another grade this year at Lakeview School. M’Chigeeng leadership is committed to the language as a key component to the success of students.
“The Ngwaaganak program is a holistic approach to learning that benefits the learner and all their gifts,” said M’Chigeeng Ogimaa-kwe Linda Debassige, in a release. “We currently have 46 students in the program. The Ngwaaganak program strives to include community in the development and execution of the program.”
Community outreach and participation will establish on-going learning in the areas of language, culture, traditions and history. The program recognizes and celebrates the rich knowledge of elders and community members. This team approach to language acquisition will benefit the school and M’Chigeeng First Nation as a whole.
