The University of Regina, today, concluded a very successful visit to Nunavut. Prior to leaving they had the opportunity to spend an interesting and informative morning session with the Deputy Minister of Education, Kathy Okpik.

They learned of the new approaches to curriculum delivery in the Territory and the goals and aspirations of the Department of Education as it pertains to enhancing educational opportunities for students.

We thank Kathy Okpik for scheduling us into her day and sharing her views on education. As a graduate of the Nunavut Teacher Education Program she is certainly able to place the educational initiatives in context for the cultural dynamic of Nunavut.

We are fully cognizant of the demands that are placed on Deputy Ministers during a sitting of the Nunavut legislature so she was quite generous with her time. Thank you, Kathy!
