Nusdeh Yoh (House of the Future) - information retrieved by BCATML Language Rep Nicole Jarvis. Content belongs to School District No. 57 (Prince George).
Nusdeh Yoh, “house of the future”, has been chosen as this Aboriginal school's name. It is a choice school in the Prince George School District. The school's name selection process involved consultation with elders, parents, staff, and students. All stakeholders desired a name that represented the hope inherent in this school to effect meaningful change in the lives of our children and families.
"In the context of Nusdeh Yoh, student success is a holistic measure. We know that the emotional health and well being of our students is fundamental to their ability to access instruction and fully participate in their learning. Our focus on Restorative Practice is more than a philosophy of student discipline. It is an acknowledgement of the need for respectful relationships between all members of our school community and forms the foundation for a positive, welcoming school environment for all learners and participants."
