Aboriginal Program

RBSS’s Aboriginal Program supports students with First Nations' heritage. The 2016/17 school year has identified over 100 Aboriginal students at Bateman. Our school's youth worker, Ruth Neveu, connects with students in a variety of ways, including working closely with the Options program, where students are offered additional academic, behavioural, emotional and social support; including healthy choices at lunches and for snacks. Checking in with students throughout the school year is our goal; however, we do our best to avoid interrupting classes. Along with initial introductions at the beginning of each year, permission forms for various cultural activities will be mailed to homes, as well as handed out to students. These forms need to be returned to the office as soon as possible. Please contact Ruth Neveu by email or phone if you have questions or concerns.
