The Quatsino Education department is committed to the learning and development of all our community members, of all ages. Whether you are a young child entering kindergarten, a youth about to leave high school or an adult looking for education opportunities, we have programs and supports in place to help you on your journey.

Community Programs

Gutsala Youth Language Program

Keeping our traditional language alive is critical to the educational success of our young people. We are proud to offer a language program that brings Elders and youth together, and creates language-learning tools, such as books, which can be passed on to future generations.

We are currently looking at online virtual options.

Reading Wellness Program

This program aims to develop and refine reading skills for all ages and all abilities.

We are currently looking at options to develop an online reading program. Please check back here for updates in the near future.
