Welcome to Matawa Education

The Matawa Education Department provides quality, accessible, community based educational support services for eight Matawa First Nation schools: Aroland, Eabametoong, Nibinamik, Long Lake #58, Ginoogaming, Neskantaga, Marten Falls and Webequie First Nations.   In addition, our department has a strong focus on adult education and skills training.

With the support of our leaders, elders, parents, educators and youth, we identify and foster the skills and resources our students need for future success in life.  Not only to achieve academic success, but also to gain cultural appreciation, and promote self-confidence and creativity.  We do this in order to preserve and enhance our quality of life and to ensure that Matawa First Nations are prosperous and healthy communities in which to live, work and raise a family.
