Voyageur School is an English, Early Years (K-5), school located in the northwest corner of the St. James Assiniboia School Division, just west of Sturgeon Creek. Voyageur School opened in the spring of 1968. Last year we proudly celebrated Voyageur School's 50 Year Anniversary. Our Mission Statement is: To develop each child’s potential in partnership with the community. Our Motto is: “Be the Best You Can Be!”
At Voyageur School, we believe in a community approach to education. “Our
children” are everyone’s responsibility and we work together to develop strong
relationships among all staff, students, and families. We educate our children
in academics, decision-making and creative problem-solving skills in order to
prepare them for a future of change. We promote positive self-esteem in
students by providing a safe environment that enables students to become
motivated and responsible learners. We believe that all students learn differently,
and we strive to teach each individual through their own learning style.
We provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where children are
encouraged to investigate, create and discover the world around them. We
believe in supporting students to take risks with their learning, in order to
develop growth with their language and literacy skills, thinking and
problem-solving skills, digital literacy, physical literacy, social and
emotional development, independence, creativity and knowledge, in preparation
for becoming responsible citizens.
Instruction in the following curricula: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education/Health, French, and the Arts is focused on meeting the unique needs of Early Years students. Instruction focuses on the integration of subject matter and hands-on, activity-based approaches to learning. Voyageur School offers a half day Kindergarten program. We believe in a strong partnership with parents through good communication between home and school and through active parental involvement in school activities. We appreciate the continuous support of our community and welcome feedback. Please feel free to contact me directly with any inquiries or suggestions related to your child's education at Voyageur School.
