Moose Factory Residential School

The settlement of Moose Factory.

News Magazine celebrates Education Week.

Five hundred miles north of Toronto!

…one of 69 residential schools.

They learn not only the games and traditions, such as the celebration of St Valentine's Day…

…the mastery of words…

...the ordinary Canadian curriculum.

They come to school in September, go home for holidays in June; instead of the isolation and neglect of the past, a free and equal chance for children in urban centres.

A service begins each day. The school is conducted by the Church of England, though it is the Department of Indian Affairs.
For the oldest Canadians, a new future.
