Welcome to our new Website!

Posted on November 19

Northland School Division No.61 (NSD61) is thrilled to launch a brand new website!

The website illustrates the cultural roots in Northland communities. It incorporates the four quadrants of the learning wheel, symbolism relating to First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) culture and imagery that showcases nature and student success! The website design allows users to find information quickly and easily and it supports the division’s goal to keep students, parents, staff and community members better informed.

“We believe the new website reflects the division as a whole,” says Donna Barrett, Superintendent of Schools. “The design truly showcases FNMI language and culture and input from the Northland family. We are very excited to use the website to communicate keys messages, success stories and as a tool to support staff and children.”

Box Clever was awarded the division’s website contract through a Request for Proposals and presentation process in 2013. The Edmonton website design and digital media agency was chosen based on their extensive experience working with school divisions and their ability to fulfil the list of deliverables.

"We are thrilled to launch the new Northland School Division website,” says Steve Mebs, Partner at Box Clever. “The site is a wonderful representation of First Nations and Métis heritage and culture that the school division is built on. Working closely with Micheal Auger, staff, administration, and the Northland Board we were able to create a site that staff, students, and community members can be proud to call their own.”

Micheal Auger, a multimedia artist and a multimedia producer assisted Box Clever in the cultural aspects for the website design. Micheal is a member of the Bigstone Cree Nation and grew up on the shores of Lesser Slave Lake. The home page offers a display of division news, upcoming events, information about their schools and their division. The website is mobile friendly and uses modern day technology. Box Clever also designed websites for all Northland schools and they will launch over the next few months.
