'small and caring'
Academy of Community
This academy builds on Nutana's strong connections within community. Students have the opportunity to access a number of programs and services as a means of supporting them to achieve their personal, academic and career goals.
Integrated School-Linked Services
Nutana has the unique opportunity to have a number of on site services and programs; these work hand in hand with teaching staff to support students to overcome barriers that might stand in the way of their being successful. These include:
The Community Developer links students and staff at Nutana to existing community programs and services in order that the overall health
and well being of students is seen as an integral part of the education process.
The daycare provides an enriched, high-quality environment for twelve infants and five toddlers of student parents attending Nutana.
This service assists students and staff in dealing with police-related issues in a proactive manner. Students can more easily access police
assistance and develop positive relationships with a law enforcement officer.
The Nurse Practitioner provides a range of health services : physicals; assessment and treatment of common medical conditions and
injuries; prescriptions; health education; addictions/mental health counselling referrals; prenatal support; and, other health needs.
The goals of this program are to assist student parents and parents-to-be to complete their education, become stronger, more interactive
parents and contributing adults. The centre provides counselling, support information, referral to community agencies, formal
programming, group support and social activities.
This service supports students to deal with some of the personal issues that become barriers to their being successful in achieving their
educational goals - issues such as housing, transportation, and lifestyle choices. Students are connected with services in the community
that can assist them.
The Stay in School Coordinator connects students to programs and services that can support them to be successful. Students can register
for weekly tutoring sessions. They can also access on a weekly basis the services of staff from the John Howard Society, a Youth
Worker from Corrections and Public Safety and Policing, and, a counsellor from Mental Health and Addiction Services.
Students have the opportunity to be part of either a Boys Mentorship Group or a Girls Club. Each group meets weekly over lunch and
strives to provide an opportunity for students to form positive relationships and to participate in a variety of activities. A SaskTel
sponsored mentorship program gives students an opportunity to engage in monthly social and educational activities with SaskTel employees.
This program aims to provide opportunities for youth and adults to work as partners in an environment that fosters positive youth
development, genuine collaboration, joint decision-making and lifelong relationships.
