BBQ and Carnival!

When mid-June arrives, its time to celebrate the ending of another school year. In addition to our annual hotdog BBQ event, there were many carnival games for students to play. There were lots of prizes for all the participants. A big thanks to Chris and his committee for organizing the entire event. It was another great year--enjoy the summer vacation!!

Saying Good-Bye

We say good-bye to some very valuable members of the Ulluriaq Team. Hilda Snowball and Susie Emudluk will retire following a very long and successful teaching career. Both have brought so much to our students and school team. Kenny Angnatuk also retires from maintenance. We wish them all the very best for their retirement. They will be greatly missed.

IPL Camping and Guiding

IPL stands for Individual Path of Learning. Students in the IPL program prefer to work with their hands and participate in cultural activities. The project-based learning allows these students to experience success and take pride in their accomplishments. The skills they learn in IPL will prepare the students for life beyond the classroom.  Their teachers, Daniel and Annie, are teaching the students all the skills necessary to survive on the land and guide tourists on the land--keeping Inuit culture strong for future generations. The IPL Guiding Project is partially funded by Brighter Futures.

Physical Education Month

May was Physical Education month in Quebec. To celebrate, Ulluriaq hosted the first ever Teachers vs Students Games.  Athletes competed once per week in floor hockey, volleyball, football and basketball. With each passing week, the rivalry grew with intensity. The students destroyed the teachers in floor hockey. But in the other three sports, the teachers were able to squeeze out close victories. In the end, we were all winners…we had fun, did some bonding and got our bodies moving.

We're Moving!

Again in 2014, Ulluriaq students were heavily involved in the Grand Défi de Pierre Lavoie. Unlike last year, there were no participants in the 1000km event. However, our students were well represented on Team Nunavik at “La Course” and set a new school record for energy cubes with our involvement in “Get Up and Move”.

A super huge thanks to all the teachers who get involved in these great initiative to make our students healthier.

Peewees vs Teachers Hockey

The Teachers VS PeeWees hockey game is a tradition that has been running since 1996. Unfortunately, there have been a few years recently where the event was missed. But in 2014, the rivalry was renewed. It was an exciting game that saw the lead change several times. The students were leading in the end of the third period, but a late goal by the teachers sent the game to overtime. In the first minute of overtime, Morgan scored the winning goal to grab the victory for the students! A big thanks goes out to Sapina and Ella who organized the event. Also, thank-you to the teachers who played and helped out.

On The Right Path!

Our students received beautiful helmets. For information about the project, see below...

“As part of the Prevention and Awareness Campaign for OHV Safety in Nunavik, this contest aims to promote helmet use among snowmobile and ATV operators. Our website www.ontherightpathnunavik.ca contains a lot of OHV-related information. There are accident and injury statistics, as well as information on safety equipment and even games.

Literacy Week

Our primary second language classes recently celebrated Literacy Week. Each class read a variety of books that were age appropriate and then decorated their door according to the theme of their favourite book. As students read books they were allowed to add sections to their “book worm”. The more books that were read, the longer their book worm. Students learned that reading can be fun!
