John George McKay, Fort Severn

Boozhoo, Wachiye!

My name is John George Mckay. I am originally from Fort Severn First Nation.  Prior to moving back to my home community I had lived in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

I am a KiHS graduate from the Fort William Classroom. Then I took the opportunity to work as a classroom assistant for our Fort Severn Classroom. This year will be my 5th year in total returning to work for KiHS.

It is quite exciting to be back in the Fort Severn classroom and I’m very much looking forward to what this new school year will bring. I wish everyone at KiHS another year full of success!

Skye Neekan, Mishkeegogamang

Hello, my name is Skye Neekan. I am the CA in the Mish KIHS class. I have been working in the class for a few months now. I’ve really been enjoying it.

Before this I worked at the elementary school here in Mish for 4 years. I thought why not try out the high school, I’ve learnt some new skills over these past couple months. During my free time I’ve been learning to bead, and got back in touch with painting. I’ve gotten pretty good at both.

Looking forward to the rest of the school year!
