The 2016 Nuxalk Summer SEAS Internship program was successful yet again in providing a wonderful SEAS Program learning experience for our youth in Bella Coola. This year’s program found a balance between providing our youth with opportunities to work with, learn from, and network with organizations involved in their own form of stewardship within Nuxalk territory.
OUR SEAS PROGRAM kicked off the first day of school in September with an Ocean's Day activity. Students learned directly from marine biologists about some of the sea animals which had been collected in a touch tank. Classroom teachings continued to focus on the ocean throughout September, with supporting lessons focused on traditional Xai'Xais language, culture, harvesting and cooking lessons.
Bella Bella Community School has had a busy winter full of interesting SEAS programming.
