Congratulations go out to Johanna Walker-Gordon who coordinates the SEAS school program in Bella Bella, for being awarded the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence. Read more here.

What sets Johanna apart is her ability to creatively integrate education that occurs outside the school with what occurs inside the school, engaging our students in exploring their traditional territory and culture, and preparing them to become environmental and resource stewards.
