There have been significant changes to the way students receive their education at the Shihiya School, School District No. 83 and post-secondary institutions. This is what the education department is doing.

Shihiya School

The school is closed until September 2020 due to health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19. Teachers continue to deliver weekly at-home learning packages to students until June 19. Occupational therapy and counselling will continue until June 19 as well. The Education Department will be looking into providing students additional supports throughout the summer.

School District No. 83 - Indigenous Education

Splatsin continues to work closely with School District No. 83. They have announced gifts, including $150, in place of a graduation this year. There are also three $500 scholarships available. In addition, they are creating a video collage which will be shared virtually (date TBA). Submit your content for the video here.

Graduates can apply for the $150 gift here and one of three $500 scholarships here.


Whether you're graduating from secondary or post-secondary school, Splatsin wants to hear from you. Submit the following information to the Education Assistant, Nerissa Joseph: graduate's name, parent's name, phone number, email address, mailing address, school name and designation.
