Lhoosk’uz Dene Nation, Lhtako Dene Nation and Nazko Nation continue education journey

“We need to engage in comprehensive, high-quality education that empowers us,” said Chief Liliane Squinas of Lhoosk’uz Dene Nation

This week many learners from the Lhoosk’uz Dene Nation, Lhtako Dene Nation and Nazko Nation will begin and continue their educational journeys.

“When I think about those entering preschool and kindergarten I think about the future – the potential for our people,” Chief Clifford Lebrun of the Lhtako Dene Nation said.

September also marks the beginning and continuation of the post-secondary educational journey for many community members.

“I encourage them to fully engage in their pathway to the future and remember that they are not only learners but also mentors for others,” Chief Stuart Alec of the Nazko Nation, who also served as President of the Quesnel Dakelh Education and Employment Society, said.

“Ensuring that community members have full participation in the economy is a priority.

“To do so we need to engage in comprehensive, high-quality education that empowers us,” said Chief Liliane Squinas of Lhoosk’uz Dene Nation.

Karsten Henriksen, who serves as the Interim-Chief Executive Officer of the Quesnel Dakelh Education and Employment Society, added: “From preschool to post-secondary education, we are here to support success in education. To that end, I would remind everyone that there are always challenges at the start of the school year. If you are struggling ask for help, there are dedicated administrators and teachers there to help you succeed.”
