National Day for Truth and Reconciliation: Sept. 30, 2021
As you may be aware, the federal government recently passed legislation to make September 30th a federal statutory holiday called the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Like all Canadians, this day provides an opportunity for each family to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools.

Congratulations to the
Welcome to Nicholas Vienneau, our Acting Principal for 2021-2022 school year!!
A Message From This Year’s Acting Principal, Nicholas Vienneau:
Hello Everyone! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Nicholas Vienneau, I have had the honour of calling Yukon my home for the past 15 years. I taught at Ghuch Tla Community School in Carcross for two years before making the transition into Whitehorse. Since that time, I have taught at both the elementary and secondary levels as a teacher and LAT, as well as worked at the Department of Education as the Experiential Consultant. Most recently, I taught in Dawson City at the Individual Learning Centre (ILC) and was the acting Principal at JV Clark School in Mayo for the last 8 months. Each of these positions have offered challenging opportunities that have helped shape my professional career.
Experiential education and working closely with Yukon First Nation knowledge holders has always been a large part of my teaching career. Perhaps, most importantly I have had the great honour of observing, participating and seeing the value of integrating Yukon First Nations ways of knowing and doing into curriculum.
My family and I spend a lot of time outside enjoying learning and playing around the Yukon. When not at school you can usually find us hiking, fishing, cross country skiing along a host of many other outdoor activities with friends and family.
I am looking forward to working with staff students, school council, Champagne and Aishihik First Nations and the greater community this year in creating a vibrant, fun and exciting school year. I look forward to meeting everyone throughout the year. I know the power of collective teamwork paired with data driven, student centered initiatives and look forward to working with you all.
Welcome to our school web site! Most of our special events, schedules and policies can be found posted on the web site.
In the beautiful mountain valleys of the southwest Yukon, our school is surrounded by forests, lakes and glacier-topped mountains. We are less than two hours’ drive from Whitehorse and participate in many sports tournaments with teams from the city. As well, our Kindergarten to Grade 12 classes follow British Columbia curriculum with a Yukon, particularly First Nation, variation. Enjoy learning about our school. Contact us with comments or questions.
