Welcome to Ted Harrison School




Mourning our Namesake

Ted Harrison

We are saddened by the death of Ted Harrison who passed away Friday January 16 at the age of 88.  When a school is named after an individual we try to embody his characteristics. 


Our mantra: Inspire, Create, Evolve is a reflection of those characteristics.

Growing up in England, Ted Harrison was academically trained in Art.  He felt this was too restrictive, too limiting. He ventured forth and travelled throughout the world before settling in the Yukon.  Each encounter contributed to the man, artist, author and teacher he became; a role model for us to emulate.


Although he was unable to attend our Opening Ceremonies due to failing health, he sent his congratulations and the following message:


I would like to say how honoured I am to have my name linked to a beautiful new school in Alberta. I am most humbled and hope we can keep in touch throughout the years. Young creators should remain curious about their world and other people’s lives and customs. You must follow your positive dreams and cast aside negative thoughts. Be bold and enjoy life, look at all the wonderful landscapes of Canada and receive inspiration from all that nature has to offer. Remember the poet’s words, “The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as Kings’.”


Our school is flying flags at half-mast this week in honour of his passing.  Our condolences go out to his family and friends.


We are pleased to announce the servery is now open


Hours of operation:  Monday to Thursday from 12:15pm to 12:45pm. 


As part of our goal to serve healthy and nutritious meals/snacks to your children at an affordable price, we have a 2-week menu cycle plan. However, this is subject to change as we continue to explore menu ideas.

Please take some time to go over the menu.  If you have any questions please call the school.
