Award Magazine Feature – Onchaminahos Elementary School

Onchaminahos Elementary School. JEN COL's Onchaminahos Elementary School project gets featured in Award Magazine.

We are proud to have one of our Indigenous projects featured in Canada Wide Media’s Award Magazine. The Onchaminahos Elementary School in Saddle Lake, Alberta opened in September 2023 and is home to more than 533 elementary students. The school is a collaborative, inclusive, welcoming space where design expertise, traditional knowledge, and community spirit unify to inspire a learning journey for students and faculty.

Onchaminahos Elementary School was built with the goal of seeing the children of the Nation educated within their Naton’s land, surrounded by their culture, community, language, and traditional teachings. The school’s vision was created by many voices from students to elders.

We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such an inspiring project. Onchaminahos not only provides a high-quality learning environment but also emphasizes the importance of integrating Indigenous culture into education and architecture. We look forward to seeing this school become a cherished home for many generations to come.
