Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year!

IMG_0867The Burnaby Aboriginal Education Department is excited for the year to come and all the great work that is about to commence with Aboriginal students and families in our district.  With the reconciliation process in the forefront in Canada and the Lower Mainland we too hope to continue building stronger communities that support all Aboriginal learners.  During the first week of school Westidge Elementary unveiled a community project that embodies their schools values.  The piece is central to the schools commitment toward building a strong community, a community that brings Aboriginal world views into the forefront for all learners to experience.  Congratulations to the Westridge community on their amazing efforts! Your project has set the focus for the year, which is to continue the work of building strong communities built on mutual understanding, much like the reconciliation process is hoping to achieve.
