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!

Handmade Soap

The IPL Girls class from Kuujjuaq recently visited Ulluriaq School. Suzanne and her girls came to run a workshop for our IPL girls on how to make soap. It was a wonderful experience. Students learned the process of soap making and build some new relationships as well.

Teacher Appreciation

The week of February 2 was Teacher Appreciation Week. Our teachers work so hard and are so dedicated to student success in our school. Non-teaching staff and students decided to show appreciation towards our beloved teachers by preparing a surprise lupper (between lunch and supper). It was a wonderful event. Thanks so much to all the teachers at Ulluriaq School—you make it a great place to be!

UFHL - Ulluriaq Floor Hockey League

Ulluriaq students have been recently diagnosed with “floor hockey fever”.  Students in Primary and Secondary each belong to a league with four teams.  At the start of the season, there were captains chosen and an official “draft” was held to select players. League play occurs every week in the gym at the school. Players can check the internet for the latest update on player and team stats. Regular league play will continue until March—then its playoff time! A big thanks to Healthy Schools for funding this project. An even bigger thanks to Maxime Lalande for his work as the UFHL Commissioner.

Volleyball Clinic

Besides hockey, volleyball is the sport of choice in Kangiqsualujjuaq. It’s a great way to keep community members active all year round.  The school was able to partner with the community for a one-week volleyball clinic. The coaches for the clinic were Phillippe Paradis and Louis-Pierre Mainville.  Phillippe has been coaching volleyball for about 20 years and has experience coaching in Salluit. Louis-Pierre is a former member of Team Canada and played in several professional leagues in Europe. The students and adults enjoyed what was shared at the clinic. A big thanks to the Recreation Department in Kangiqsualujjuaq for funding this project.
