Lexéy’em: TteS Education Awards Ceremony

Posted on: June 12, 2024


Weytkp xwexweytep (Hello Everyone)

I would like to thank leadership of manager Dessa Gottfriedson and her staff at TteS Education Department for hosting amazing community event on Tuesday, June 11, 2024 at Moccasin Square Garden. I was very blessed to be able to witness the event firsthand watching so many of TteS students stand together and get honoured after school year of hard work.

Nice to see so many of the family and friends show up to event to support our TteS students just tells me that it takes whole community to support academic success for each student.

Having the Language and Culture Department there to support the event with singing welcome song and honour song and having Elders doing prayer for opening and food blessing only adds to pride of what it is to be apart of TteS community spirit. I would also like to say great job to Tkwenem7iple Nikki Fraser for stepping in last minute to be the Master of Ceremony for the event you did wonderful job.

I truly believe each time we gather as people of TteS it is part of developing and healing of our TteS spirit, I will keep doing my best to support theses kind of events like this to gather and stand up our people in beautiful way.
