KEHEWIN CREE NATION K-12 SCHOOL
Tawaw (welcome) will be painted in bold letters on to the generous sidewalk leading up to the main entrance plaza, setting the tone for the design of this new K-12 School on the Kehewin Reserve – warm, welcoming and distinctly Cree.
The entrance plazas in front of the two main entrances will have a triangular pattern painted on the concrete, reminiscent of a circle of tipis.
The school site will provide spaces for land based learning opportunities, such as a gathering fire pit, an amphitheater made out of logs, as as well as a natural play area including hills with a slide, swings, obstacle courses and climbing equipment all made out of natural materials.
In addition a basketball court and graffiti wall will cater to the high school students and fundraising is currently undergoing to include a zip line on the school site.
All planting is native and includes many plants traditionally used for food, medicinal purposes or plants used for craftsmanship.
