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!


Culture Experience

This week, all of the secondary students gathered with culture teachers and Elders to learn about cleaning a seal. A large amount of information was shared by everyone who attended. In addition to learning how to clean the seal, Elders talked about the anatomy of the animal and shared interesting facts on how the body parts were used in the past.  The students were extremely interested and attentive.  It was a very valuable learning experience. The group couldn't resist having a snack during the workshop.

Halloween Fun!

Once again, Ulluriaq hosted Halloween fun for all the students. Primary students spent the morning visiting classes to play a variety of exciting and spooky games--they also had a chance to visit our Haunted Science Lab! In the afternoon students showed up in costume to gather in the gym for our annual costume parade. A student from each class had a chance to win prizes. Even teachers participated in a costume contest. Happy Halloween!

PBIS - Ulluriaq School

The Compassionate Schools and PBIS program is still moving forward at Ulluriaq School. This is the third full year of the implementation and we are seeing a lot of success.

Tools, such as “the Ulluriaq Cup” challenges and the earning of behaviour specific badges, have provided students with more ownership of the school environment and have made learning positive behaviours more fun as they are recognized when they are being good school citizens and meeting the expectations.

There are many other ways we are trying to improve our school and become a much more safe, predictable and enjoyable place to study and work, but PBIS and Compassionate School strategies are helping us to move in the right direction!

Starting Another Year

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.

Secondary students kicked off the new year with a fun day of Inuit baseball and soccer.

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.
