Students will be bused from school to community centre at 2:30pm. Parents can meet them there or they can pick up children from school themselves.

Thank you to Rod Jeddore for agreeing to let the kids leave a half hour earlier and arranging a new bus schedule for that day so that the kids can enjoy the festivities!!!

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Carmelita Drew will daycare xmas party be changed?

Daycare party is Monday now and parade on Tuesday.

Why on a Tuesday and not the following Sunday?

Public Notice: Income Tax Returns

Miawpukek First Nation's Training and Economic Development Department is working with the Canada Revenue Agency to determine if there is a need to come to Conne River for a day to assist with completing people's outstanding income tax returns.

The priority will be given to those that have small children and are qualified to receive the child care benefits.

They can also provide assistance with the filing of any other applications such as CPP, etc.

Interested community members are asked to contact Tracy Howse directly if they would like to avail of this service.

If we get at least ten interested people we will confirm a workshop with CRA here in Conne River.

Please make contact before December 14, 2017.

It has come to our attention that several youth have been seen both around and in the old school during times when they are not supposed to be.

We wanted to make the youth, parents and the general public aware that this building is still being maintained and highly utilized by many programs and is currently under a temporary management order by the Training and Economic Development Department as directed by Chief and Council.

MFN is currently undergoing a feasibility study to determine the future of this building as well as its uses and until that is completed we are maintaining and utilizing this building to help gap some of our programming needs.

The camera system is up and running and will continue to be. We are encouraging everyone to be vigilant for any activities in this area and to encourage you to report. The RCMP has and will continue to be called in the event that anyone breaks in or creates a danger issue for themselves or anyone else.

We are hoping and working towards a plan that will be of benefit for all community members. It would be a shame if there are any damages or incidents occurring when there should not be. This building is still very much in use and it is not abandoned. Please take the time to speak to your children on this important issue.

If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to know more about the programming and services TEDD is currently offering through the use of the old school please contact Tracy Howse, Director of Training and Economic Development.

Omg...... They should go in a photo album!!

Only one there jumps out at me ... looks like Gerald John or wa!

Some people look almost the same now as they did back then, a little older but that's it.

There was an idea of having a history room with all of this on exhibit tossed around by one of our staff to ensure everything is available for viewing by general public.

Got my bit of education once I got out and up to St. Albans,then I was expelled at 15 for asking to many ?.lol

Chief & Council would like to thank everyone who attended the Christmas Tree Lighting and Mi'kmaq Sharing Tree held Friday, December 1, 2017 at the old school.

It was great to see so many community members attend with their families as you are one of the essential ingredients in sustaining a healthy community.

Miawpukek is not only a community, it is a family.
