Bishop Routhier School is a part of Northland School Division No. 61, located 56 KM north of High Prairie Alberta. We currently have 60 students from Kindergarten to grade 6 in our school.
Our students, teachers, and staff are very excited to work with Trickster Theatre in the 2017-18 school year to put on our show on Get Back Up Again.
We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to sharing our finished work with you!
Full Project Summary
In our residency with Trickster Theatre, will will be exploring the theme Get Back Up Again. The definition of resilience is:
1.the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. “the often remarkable resilience of so many Canadian students”
2. the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity. “nylon is excellent in wearability and resilience”
The concept of resilience is extremely important for students to master in order to be functional citizens in today’s society. This is especially important for our FNMI students as they are trying to bridge the gap between their traditional culture and modern day practices. Historically, the Metis culture is one based on adaptation and resiliency and we want our students to integrate this knowledge into their self identity. Despite direct assimilation attempts, residential school systems, and the Church trying to deny the Metis heritage and traditions, the culture has continued on strong and proud.
Project OutcomeStudents everywhere are facing many challenges in today’s world. I chose the theme Get Back Up Again to send the message that yes, at times you will fall in life BUT you have to get back up again and keep trying. I want to tap into student interests to heighten the success of a school wide project. This can be done through drama! Drama helps people step out of their comfort zone. With our students attending school in a rural area from Kindergarten to grade 6, drama can help prepare them, and help with their shyness before they attend the high schools in a bigger town.
