Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
The SENCOTEN language has been successfully over the years, has been taught in the L.Tribal School. With regret it is not being taught in the Provincial Elementary Schools. By attaining this language grant, the Tsawout Learning House after-school program will be giving the opportunity to practice in speaking, reading and writing SENCOTEN, as the children, youth and elders learn the language together during program hours and at evening classes.
Challenges: 
Our biggest challenge is the funding for extra-curricular programs. Tsawout Learning House seeks funding through grants otherwise, we do not have the opportunity to implement a constant ongoing language program for the Tsawout First Nation community.
