Hello, Way', Tawanshi, Ullaakuut,

The Aboriginal Education Department in SD67 offers various supports and opportunities for students of Aboriginal ancestry.  

Our goal is to enhance educational, social, and cultural opportunities for all Aboriginal students.

 Some of the optional highlights of participating in the ABED program include: 

·         Unique cultural opportunities

·         In-class Support

·         Advocacy

·         In-school program opportunities

·         Scholarship, bursary, and post-secondary and community program opportunities

 

The Aboriginal Education department employs Aboriginal Educational Teachers, Support Workers, a Cultural Coordinator, and a Family Support Worker that support all students of Aboriginal ancestry who are enrolled in our district.

 

We, Tanya Hall (Aboriginal Support Teacher), Jolanda Poetsch (Aborginal Support Worker), and Lana Lebler (Aboriginal Youth and Family Counsellor - Okanagan Boys and Girls Club) look forward to suporting all of our Indigenous students and their families in our building.  

We will be covering: What school and community supports are available-how to access them, How to build resilience in youth, Harm reduction strategies, and Language that can help youth open and talk about this subject

 

Limlemt, Marci, Kowyanami, Thank-you,

Mrs. Hall, Mrs. Poetsch, Mrs. Lebler
