NSD mourning loss of Grouard community member

Posted on March 31

Northland School Division is saddened by the news regarding the death of a Grouard community member. The Board of Trustees, Superintendent, and school division staff offer their deepest sympathies to Shawn Auger's family and friends. Shawn was a loving husband, father, son, brother, and uncle. He worked with at-risk youth and was also a hockey coach. 

Our thoughts are with the community of Grouard, Grouard School staff, and the many families, Shawn touched through his continuous support of community activities. 

During this difficult time, we have put together resources on our website https://www.nsd61.ca/about-us/division-news/post/covid-19-mental-health-resources.  We encourage families and staff to access the resources.

Sorry to hear of the passing of Shawn Auger. We also heard from Mr Cecil Cardinal of the Woodland Cree (Cadotte Lake) that his 43 year old son, a former NSD student when my spouse was a teacher there had passed on also. We offer our condolences to the families. Darsh & Annette
