About » History


In 1966, Wikwemikong Junior School had opened its doors to its first students. This beautiful one-story building covers a total land area of 2,537.76 square meters. The growing population of our community over the years reflects the additions- consisting of our present gymnasium in 1990-1991, two classrooms in 1996 and finally in 2000, an addition to the North section of the school, which made room for an additional three (3) classrooms and two offices.

Today, the Wikwemikong Junior School accommodates students from the Full-Day Kindergarten program to Grade 3. There are approximately 15 classrooms in the school with one classroom devoted to the Wiikwemkoong Anishinaabemowin Kinoomaagewin Department. 

If you walk through our school, which we invite you to do, you will get a sense of cultural pride by the painted murals on the walls, which were left as a legacy and a reminder of our connection with spirit and our identity as Anishinaabe people by the late Francis Kagige.
