Windebank Elementary: Native Games Program

Windebank Elementary: Native Games Program

Windebank Elementary School in Mission has applied for a $3,500 grant from The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund Adopt-a-School program for an All Aboriginal Healing and Native Games Program.

With a goal of strengthening these students’ sense of belonging, the program will give 74 aboriginal students the opportunity to learn how their ancestors utilized traditional games to stay healthy in mind, body and spirit. They will find out how the “Old Ones” used the games to settle disputes, exercise spiritual growth and of course, have fun.
