Education Overview

The TH Education Program ensures students learn about and make healthy life choices, while also being immersed in activities and outings that promote Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in language and culture.

We manage TH education programs and services for Kindergarten to Grade 12 by engaging with the federal and territorial education departments, working with other TH departments, liaising with Robert Service School (RSS) staff, advocating for students and parents/guardians, and ensuring TH representation in RSS through the Community Education Liaison Coordinators (CELCs). TH CELCs play an important role in improving the educational and personal well-being of TH students by conveying creativity and receptiveness to the needs of the students and school environment and through investigating, evaluating and promoting education programs, cultural initiatives, projects, events, and supports for identified needs.
