Education Week celebrated across Yukon

WHITEHORSE—Yukon Education Week will celebrate the theme Many Paths to Learning with events across the territory from April 27 to May 1.

“This year’s theme highlights how we are supporting success for each student through individualized learning and inclusion,” Minister of Education Doug Graham said. “Education Week also recognizes our partners in education, including parents, school councils, First Nations governments, local businesses, community groups and others.”

Events are taking place throughout Yukon. Tantalus School in Carmacks and J.V. Clark School in Mayo are hosting a full week of mini-events, including community meals and arts workshops.

In Whitehorse, Selkirk Elementary School is hosting a spring showcase of student work in arts, music and experiential learning and Golden Horn Elementary is holding an open house featuring heritage fair projects and musical performances.

The Department of Education will also have a booth at the Lake Laberge Lions’ Yukon Trade Show from May 1 to 3 at the Canada Games Centre to celebrate this year’s theme. The booth will showcase education programs and services and will offer information on educational technology, self-regulation, WorkFutures and Yukon career opportunities.

Other Education Week event hosts include the Family Literacy Centre, the Educators for Social Justice Committee and the Yukon Transportation Museum, among others.
