Enhancement

To shape a proud Mi’gmaq student body by strengthening their cultural identity and connecting students to resources

The Enhancement Program is a joint signed agreement between the Province of New Brunswick and the Listuguj Mi'gmaq First Nation, among other First Nations in NB.

Our agreement facilitates a positive working relationship between the Listuguj Mi'gmaq First Nation and Anglophone North & Francophone North School Districts (Campbellton area).

The province of New Brunswick has committed 50% of the tuition fee paid by the Listuguj Mi'gmaq First Nation back to them, in order to provide services and programs for all eligible Listuguj students attending public schools.

The nominal roll is all eligible students who reside in Listuguj, but attend a provincial school in New Brunswick (Campbellton area).

This funding helps to determine what services and programs are needed for our students.

 Fun Facts 

Listuguj was the 1st First Nation to sign the Enhancement Agreement with the Province of New Brunswick in December of 2008.

Our students were the 1st to make a Birch Bark Canoe as their Co-op credit towards their high school diploma.

SSHS offers Parent Teacher meetings here in our community for students/parents on Parent Teacher Interview day each semester.

We made history by being the 1st school in the Province of New Brunswick to have a dedicated flag pole and raised the Mi’gmaq Grand Council flag.

We have Culture Days at SSHS to celebrate the 4 seasons

We have seen negative impacts with our students who turn 18 and receive their SA funds, so we implemented a program to help them manage their funds responsibly.

We moved 12 seats that we pay for from the Campbellton Learning Centre into our community which we call the Listuguj Learning Centre.
