HBOIERC Orange Shirt Day
Helen Betty Osborne Ininiw Education Resource Centre honour and remember those who went to residential schools. Every Child Matters - Kahkinow Awasisak Akisowak
Today one of our staff members, Doug Braden, provided and collected tobacco ties to place in the sacred fire he lit at his home.
You hold the tobacco tie in your left hand (the hand closest to your heart) and when you pray, you are putting your prayers into the tobacco. Then, the tobacco tie is placed in a sacred fire and your prayers rise to the Creator in the tobacco smoke.
COVID Exposure Toolkit
The following toolkit will be used at the school to determine the actions our school will be taking when dealing with increasing COVID cases.
Some of the teachers of HBOEIRC decided that they would celebrate our students first day back to school by wearing traditional ribbon skirts and ribbon shirts. We are proud to be ininiw and take pride in who we are as Cree people. We celebrate our way of life!!

During this time of isolating and distancing, it can be very easy to feel as if you are alone with your emotions, and dealing with the stresses that comes with coping with this global pandemic. This is why now more than ever, it is so important to come together and support each other. From our principals, teachers, resource, and educational assistants, to our secretaries, custodians, kitchen staff, bus drivers, maintenance staff, security, librarians, counsellors and most importantly our students, WE ARE ALL HUSKIES, and we are no doubt, in this TOGETHER. Remember HBOIERC CARES!!

Learning from Home - Ed - Sites
Teachers and parents are now looking for online content that will help the students to continue with the education process. We understand that not all students have internet access, but for those that do, the following site provides tons of links. The web resources are broken down by course.

Enjoy!
Grade 3E of HBOIERC are learning about soils and the environment. They had the chance of digging up fresh vegetables, potatoes, beets and carrots. The digging and getting our hands dirty was so fun and exciting! They are very thankful and were humbled to take home for supper and for Thanksgiving! The next morning they said the potatoes were very delicious! Happy Thanksgiving from Grade 3’s.
