Global Ladies Visit Oskāyak

Oskāyak students had special visitors today.  Lisa Dutton, Joelle Tomlinson and Jessica Kent from Global TV Saskatoon spent a few hours with english language art students sharing their personal stories and experiences as reporters and news anchors.  Students interviewed the ladies to learn more about careers in broadcasting and were eager to tweet about their presentation and their photos with the local celebrities.  Many thanks to the three!  It was a great morning.

Round Dance

Tānsi, kinanaskomitin ē ayamihtāyin ōma kā masinahaman.   Hello, thank you for taking the time to read this message. 

We are a group of English students at Oskāyak High School who will be hosting a round dance in honour of Missing & Murdered Aboriginal Women across Canada and their families.  We have chosen the name poko ka māmitonēmāyahkik iskwēwak kā pē misowānācihihcik ēkwa kā nakatācik owahkômakanowāwa, which means; honoring the memory of Missing and Murdered Women and the families left behind. Our group chose a cultural celebration and has dedicated a considerable amount of time researching, talking to elders, reading articles and viewing multimedia sources to prepare for this celebration. We wish to share our knowledge about this topic at the round dance.

This is a very important cause that the ELA 20 Culture Group has shown a great deal of interest in and are passionate about creating awareness in our community. Your attendance would be greatly appreciated; everyone is welcome to attend this ceremony.

There will be a feast at 3:00 pm with the round dance to follow at 6:30 pm; all will take place in Oskāyak gymnasium Wednesday November 5th. If you have any questions please feel free to call Oskāyak High School (306) 659-7730.

Thank you for your time and we hope to see you.

Sincerely,

 ELA 20 Culture Group

T Ross, L Ratt, C.J Prosper, C Prosper, L McGillivary, K Sanderson and J Fillion
