Welcome to another year of growth and learning. Aboriginal education (ABED) is a diverse and vibrant department where we celebrate the gifts, strengths and identity of our students and families and the staff who work with them. We work throughout the district to foster inclusive classrooms and schools where each and every student feels a sense of belonging and experiences academic success.
We want to tell you a little more about who we are and what we do so we have included some answers to frequently asked questions below. You can also visit our website at http://abed.sd79.bc.ca or join our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ABEDsd79. We hope that you will make contact with the ABED staff at your school this year, say hi and look for ways to join us in our work.
