Celebrating the life of George Blacksmith

George Blacksmith 2 654

The Cree School Board commissioners, directors, employees, teachers, and students mourn the loss of a man who believed education was the key to our Nation's future. 

George Blacksmith passed away unexpectedly in Montreal on February 11, 2020. We are deeply saddened by the loss of this great leader, pioneer, and champion of Cree education.

Merry Christmas from CSB staff and students!


Cree School Board students and teachers have been busy with Christmas activities. Students sang carols, created art, and decorated classroom doors, hallways, and offices. And, some had the chance to sit on Santa's knee!

Participants Needed for Adult Education Research Interviews

Participants Needed for ALNA

It is an exciting time for capacity building and continuing education in the Cree Nation. The Cree School Board’s Sabtuan Adult Education Services (SAES) knows it has a significant role to play in the Cree Nation’s future. We are determined to offer the right programs and services to enable the success of each community.

This is the reason behind SAES’ major consultation– the Adult Learning Needs Assessment (ALNA). Through the ALNA, SAES is collecting experiences, opinions, and ideas directly from the communities to build local adult education and training strategies.

Education is key in capacity-building

CNG Summit

Delegates at the Cree Nation Government’s Summit on Building Capacity for Eeyou Istchee heard a message loud and clear: collaboration and education are key to our success as a Nation. From Grand Chief Abel Bosum's opening and closing mantra - "If there are no big dreams, there are no accomplishments," to the Cree School Board's call to collaborative action, to Youth Grand Chief Kaitlynn Hester's moving remarks - "We want you to move, to act - we want you to walk the talk" - the atmosphere at the Sheraton Centre in Montreal on October 23 and 24, 2019 was filled with hope, dedication, and collaboration.

"I just wish people would realize that anything's possible if you try." Students took those words from Terry Fox to heart, and raised more than $11,000 in this year's runs and walks around their communities.
