Niitsitapi Learning CentreCalgary, Alberta 509 / 175 Books Given
Principal Michelle Ranger
This learning centre for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students from preschool age to grade two is in its fourth year of operation. We moved into our building January 2016, and thanks to Indigo Love of Reading we are able to continue to fill our learning commons and classroom shelves with books.
We have a limited budget to fill our classroom libraries. The book shelves in the classrooms have space to be filled! In the last year we have doubled the number of students in the building, and our students love reading. Many of our families have limited books at home, and as such, literacy is a major focus at our school. As our students are young, we have ensured that families can come and borrow books from our learning commons collection, so it is important to have a number of books available for both students and families.
Being sponsored by Indigo will greatly impact the success of our Indigenous students this year and future generations.
Many of our students love:
-Elephant and Piggie books
-Fly Guy books
