Kapawe’no First Nation – At Kapawe’no Nêhiyawak School we really pride ourselves with the balance each student has with academics and athletics.
Young Ms Anna Lay, Sucker Creek is a grade 5 student who begins her day sometimes in the gym before school talking to Mr Thomas on achieving her goals she has set out with academics and athletics.
After that she heads into studio with Mr Kubrakovich, the Knowledge Keepers and Grade 6/7 students for the Nêhiyawêwin language pre session. Students learn the words of the day, week and go through the tasks set out for each classroom participating in Nehiyawewin.
After that she spends hours with Mrs Chalifoux and Mrs Courtoreille working on academics. She has six other siblings that go to the school with her. On alternating days she’s playing hockey, working on and off ice to get better at a sport she has really enjoyed. On other days she’s in lacrosse, baseball and archery. During physical education and wellness she leads by example as Mr Thomas would say. Most recently she was gifted a jacket and soccer jersey from her hard work and dedication with Academics and Athletics.
Ms Anna continues to shine in a school that has appreciated dedication from students, parents and a continued never give up on Muskwak forever attitude.
