ECHO

The Echo Program is a classroom community enriched by Aboriginal Perspectives for Aboriginal students and non-aboriginal students who want an education enriched by an Aboriginal focus.

 

​Why consider an ECHO educational experience?

  • I value an Aboriginal perspective to enrich my education
  • I value a supportive relationship with an Aboriginal teacher as my primary teacher, advocate, and role model
  • I value a smaller classroom that emphasizes relationships, community, acceptance, connection, and opportunities
  • My parents would value working with an Aboriginal teacher to support my education
  • I value a strength-based program that helps students like me to find my gifts and greater understanding of my heritage

A Grade 9 Program at Windsor Park Collegiate will

  • discover and develop the gifts of aborignal students
  • frame a vision of students' potential
  • increase belonging and community
  • strengthen relationships between school and family
  • enrich student learning and engagement through traditional teachings, supports, and opportunities
  • support a successful transition to high school

Which Grade 9 credits will be offered through ECHO?

  • ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies are delivered within the ECHO program
  • Courses will run in both first and second semester
  • The additional 4 courses are Physical Education, Reading is Thinking and 3 electives, consistent with all grade 9 students at Windsor Park Collegiate
