Kattawapiskak Elementary School The school was recently built and have been in use since the summer of 2014. The start up of the school was aided by Shannen Koostachin to help push the development of this school due to a lack of one, instead a series of "Make shift Portables" were used since 2000, when J.R.N. Elementary School was condemned and closed.
The School has been named to Kattawapiskak after the community original name.
Shannen worked tirelessly to try to convince the Federal government to give First Nations children a proper education before tragically passing away at the age of 15 years old in 2010. Named in her memory, the campaign engages Aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples to better understand the education inequities and to take action to ensure all First Nations children and young people attend good schools and receive a proper education that prepares them to achieve their dreams and be proud of their distinct cultures and languages.
