Skwah Education

Skwah First Nation’s Education Department provides a variety of support for band members who are attending school at all levels.

The department looks after all on-reserve students enrolled in classes from Kindergarten to Grade 12, providing financial support for supplies and allowances. A nominal roll is kept and students earning top grades also receive monetary rewards.

Provided that they are attending eligible programs, post-secondary students may be able to receive support from Skwah First Nation ranging from tuition and books to a living allowance for full time students. For more information, please contact Bev Williams or Leslie Williams at the Band Office at 604.792.9204 or email: bev.williams@skwah.org or leslie.williams@skwah.org
