    In some areas of learning, explicit Aboriginal content is included (e.g., information about residential schools in Social Studies; Aboriginal peoples’ uses of indigenous plants and animals, or their knowledge of the sky and landscape, in Science). In other areas, there are opportunities to learn about Aboriginal people in the local community, for example or Aboriginal literature.

    From Kindergarten to graduation, students will experience Aboriginal perspectives and understandings as an integrated part of what they are learning.
