Recognizing Traditional Territories Protocol
The Aboriginal Educational Council has developed a protocol for acknowledging the traditional territories of the Coast Salish People in which our district resides.   The following is an excerpt of the protocol.  

    "Welcome everyone and thank you for being here.  We would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the shared traditional territory of the Coast Salish people on which our schools are located.  We recognize the Katzie and Semiahmoo First Nations who have signed the Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement.  We would also like to recognize the diverse population of people who have come to Surrey School District and contribute to its dynamic culture."  


Every school should have received a copy of the new FNESC Science Guide (Grades 5-9)!  You can download additional copies from the FNESC website.  If you want additional hard copies, you can order them from FNESC.
