Welcome to the Ulluriaq School Website. Ulluriaq School is in the Inuit community of Kangiqsualujjuaq in the northern region of Quebec. Students from Kindergarten to Secondary 5 attend our school and learn in Inuktitut, French and English. We use this website to highlight a variety of special events. Enjoy your tour!

Back on Track!

The 2014-15 school year is underway.  We gathered in the gym on August 20 to welcome the new students and welcome back our former students.  We also welcomed all returning and new staff members. As always, this year promises to be a great one--packed with all kinds of fun learning experiences and activities.

Final Gathering

Before we break for summer, the staff meets for one final gathering. Although it is a time to celebrate all the wonderful things that were accomplished during the year, it is also a sad time. We must say good-bye to some friends. Joe, Luc and Josee will be leaving us to begin a new journey in the South. They will be greatly missed. Have a great summer everyone!

Carnival Day!

The end of the school year is traditionally celebrated with our end of the year BBQ and Carnival. The rain attempted to dampen our spirits, so we moved everything indoors. Despite the weather, everyone had fun and filled their bellies. A big thanks to the Carnival Committee and all the teachers for making the event such a success for all the students.

Obstacle Race Challenge

Primary students spent an enjoyable afternoon outdoors running an obstacle course. The focus was not on competition, but rather on participation and physical activity. The event was the finale for our participation in the Energy Cube event. Lots of kids expending lots of energy and having lots of fun! A big thanks to Charlie and Felix for building the obstacles. Thanks also goes out to Manon and Max for organizing the event.

Celebration of Education

To commemorate the near end of the school year, Ulluriaq School held a “Celebration of Education” event on May 28th. It was a wonderful event where teachers, students, and parents came together to celebrate academics in our community.

The day started by welcoming all parents to visit the classes during the morning. Parents had a chance to meet the teachers and experience what everyday learning is really like. It was a very cozy open-house style atmosphere.

In the evening, everyone gathered in the gymnasium for the main event. Nancy welcomed everyone to our celebration and the Kindergarten classes opened with a song. There were speeches by the Education Committee President, the Commissioner and some of our former graduates who are now attending CEGEP. Each of the speeches highlighted the importance of education for the future of Nunavik.

Healthy Food Fair

On Wednesday afternoon, March 25 we united in the gym for our second, Ulluriaq Healthy Food Fair.  During this time, students had the opportunity to sample 8 different healthy foods.

To start the event all students were grouped in the middle of the gym.  At this time a few words about health were said to start this event.  Then we began the food fair by presenting their taste tasting cards.  Each homeroom teachers served a healthy food with much satisfaction and happy bellies.  Newly featured was a blender bike which blended smoothies as students biked.

Students looked forward to this event and once again it was a successful one. 

A huge thank you goes out to Melanie Picard, our Healthy School Counsellor who made all of this possible through the KSB Complementary Services. 

We are on the right road towards a healthier life.

Primary Qimutsik Excursions

Once again this year, the IPL groups and their teachers Daniel and Annie Annanack organized dog team excursions for all the students in primary. Jako and Daniel mushed groups of students to Old Woman's Lake where they had a tent set up. The students made fires, ate lunch and hunted ptarmigan. Students and teachers really enjoyed the excursions. The IPL boys and girls did a super job at helping out and taking good care of the younger students--GREAT WORK!

A big thanks to Brighter Futures for providing the funding to make these excursions possible.
