As part of the day’s festivities, current Kluane Lake School students contributed to a time capsule that will be buried on the school grounds during future construction.

The community gathered to commemorate the partnership between the governments of Canada, Yukon, and Kluane First Nation as the current school year came to an end and the trees on the future construction site were cleared. This cooperative organization is proceeding to move the Kêts’ádań Kų̀ school project forward, which will better serve youngsters and families locally long into the future.
