Surrey School District announces land-based learning program rooted in Coast Salish culture, traditions

Surrey School District has announced that it will be offering an Elementary Outdoor Land-Based Learning Program at Hall’s Prairie starting in the 2024-2025 school year. The program will be rooted in Indigenous Coast Salish culture and traditions and aligned with the First Peoples Principles of Learning. In addition to learning about Coast Salish culture, traditions, and history, students will have daily land-based learning experiences and learn how to be stewards of the land they live on. Learning will take place in a small school setting where students can develop their competencies through emergent, experiential, inquiry-based, play-based, and place-based learning.
