Principal’s Message

Applications are now being accepted to Register for WVC Semester 2 classes!

Registration for semester 2 of the 2020-2021 school year is now open to any student attending an MFNERC-partner school. Students can enroll in one or more online classes with WVC, while still taking local classes. WVC teachers utilize a comprehensive online system to teach, communicate, engage, and support learning. WVC is now in its 11th year, offering more than 35 available credits, with more in development.
All courses are built from provincial curricula and taught with a First Nation-focused perspective. We have changed our delivery model to provide more flexibility to support the changing needs of our schools. Teachers will present course material by posting a dynamic weekly schedule, complete with pre-recorded video instruction and supplemented with daily live 30-minute live exchange sessions. Small group and individual tutoring are available by appointment throughout the semester.
Our courses give students a more extensive range of credit and scheduling options, many of which may not be available locally. No prior online course experience is required. WVC is here to help First Nation students in Manitoba access new education sources and find new learning opportunities for students.
Courses may fill quickly, so register today to avoid disappointment. Contact your school administrator or guidance counsellor and start the enrollment process today.
NEW! This year, teachers may request to use the same learning management system to engage with their students. Build your course online using the same network used at WVC. Training is available to help you get started in preparing for remote teaching too. If you are interested in this option, choose Teacher Registration to sign up!

Semester 2 classes begin on February 1, 2021, and WVC teachers are busy completing their current students’ tasks. WVC is the first in the province to have online language options for grade 9 and 10 Ojibwe (Anishinaabemowin) language. These classes for our youth are such an essential part of revitalizing languages. Also, WVC has a new course titled Applied Family Studies 40S!
The WVC staff looks forward to working with any new partner schools from our member schools. Registering students must return signed permission slips for the coming semester, available for print out when you submit your application.
You are welcome and encouraged to keep us in mind for high school courses you may require in the future. Keep checking back for the most current information.
It’s going to be a great semester!
