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. We will be celebrating our 50th 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 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 strive to teach each individual through their own learning style. We strive to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where children are encouraged to investigate, create and discover. Children develop their competencies in: 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. Voyageur School staff believe in a strong partnership with parents through good communication between home and school and through active parental involvement in school activities.
