About Us

Welcome and Hadeeh




William Konkin Elementary School (WKE) is located in the beautiful village of Burns Lake, BC.


In addition to courses taught in English, the WKE school community is proud to offer Carrier language classes.


We would like to acknowledge the traditional territories of the Lake Babine Nation, Ts'il Kaz Koh, Wet’suwet’en First Nation, Nee Tahi Buhn Band, Skin Tyee First Nation and Cheslatta Carrier Nation. We would like to thank them for the privilege of living on the land and the gift of working with their children.


Our wonderful and friendly staff serve approximately 200 students in our kindergarten to grade seven school.


Our dedicated team of educators are committed to creating lasting student success. We have a continued focus on the essential skills of literacy and numeracy to ensure our learners are best prepared for the challenges ahead that will help them stretch and grow. Our team works hard to provide social emotional learning which is so important in our rapidly changing and complex world.


Through engaging in fundamental skills, play-based learning and outdoor adventure we hope to create a community that learns beyond the walls of this building and truly soars among the clouds like eagles!
