Sakaskohc High School

Onion Lake Cree Nation
Onion Lake Cree Nation, Saskatchewan

The Onion Lake Cree Nation’s new Sakaskohc High School is designed to be a state-of-the-art facility for learning and accommodate the growing student population. The new school features a large cafeteria/student commons, substantial space dedicated to practical and applied arts, a lecture theatre, and a full double-court gymnasium with an elevated running track. Stakeholder and user group involvement has been an essential component of the project. Students, teachers, administrators, education directors as well as Onion Lake Cree Nation Chief and council members were engaged to identify the vision of the new high school.

A collaborative component of this project is a community aquatics facility that is designed to be connected to the new high school facility. This partnership will greatly enhance community recreational opportunities with access to both school fitness and gymnasium facilities after regular school hours.
