The Education Department provides opportunities for Wahta Mohawks to achieve elementary, secondary and post secondary success through available programs and services. To obtain more information of this program contact Carol Holmes at 705-762-2354 x 233.

During these unprecedented times we will continue to provide the services to the best of our ability.  All outside organizations that we work with including all schools have shut down for the duration.  Our service provision is limited at this time.

Our Post Secondary applications have moved to an online application process however we were mid way in setting up this procedure. We hope this will be available to use in the near future.

We have included a list of resources for parents to support at home learning.  Should there be any questions or specific needs please contact Carol Holmes, see the above contact information.

Although our administration office is temporarily closed, we are working from home and I can be reached via email at or by phone at 705-641-1548.

Education Update on Covid-19

Memorandum to: Principals of Private Schools/Principals of First Nation/Federally Operated Schools

From: Nancy Naylor, Deputy Minister of Education

Subject: Update on COVID-19

The COVID-19 situation in Ontario is continuing to evolve and we are committed to keeping you informed. On March 17, 2020, the Premier of Ontario, Doug Ford, declared a state of emergency and ordered the closure of all private schools as defined in the Education Act, until March 31, 2020 unless the emergency is terminated earlier. Private schools may decide whether to continue to offer online teaching and learning during this period.

In addition, please be aware that the Minister of Education has provided direction to cancel all Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) assessments for the 2019-20 school year. The Minister has also directed that the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) be waived as a graduation requirement, as set out in Section 6 of Ontario Schools, Kindergarten to Grade 12: Policy and Program Requirements, 2016, for students who are otherwise able to graduate in the 2019-20 school year. These changes provide the conditions to enable students to fulfill graduation requirements in our current context.

We recognize that you will have many additional questions and we are committed to providing additional information on an ongoing basis.

Visit Ontario’s website to learn more about how the province continues to protect Ontarians from COVID-19.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Ontario students and children.

Nancy Naylor,

Deputy Minister
