The Order of the Sash Awards

To honour and celebrate our heritage, we have created new awards at the school using the various colours of the threads used in the Métis Sash.

                                                          Did you know?

The Red represents the blood of the Metis that was shed through the years while fighting for our rights.

The Blue represents depths of our mighty Spirit.

The Green represents the fertility of a great nation.

The White represents our connection to the earth and our creator.

The Yellow represents the prospect of prosperity.

The Black represents the dark period of the suppression and dispossession of the Métis land.

Therefore, every month the school will recognize students selected from each class who have made great contribution to our school.  Students with:

  • Perfect attendance will receive the Order of the Sash- White Strand/ Connection Award.
  • Best attitude and effort will receive the Order of the Sash- Red Strand/ Perseverance Award.
