Superintendent's Welcome

Umba Wathtech

I bring you greetings on behalf of the Stoney Education Authority and our four schools. We endeavor to provide the best education possible to the people of the Bearspaw, Chiniki, and Wesley First Nations.  

The children and young adults attending our schools are the future of Morley, Eden Valley, and Big Horn.  They receive instruction that challenges them to do their best mentally and physically to ensure they are ready to take on the necessary roles in the communities.  We encourage our students to do their very best so that they may come and take their rightful places within the communities.


We attempt to stay within traditional practices while making the most of new educational practices and technologies.  We continue to strive forward to make even greater progress with the students we serve.


Bill Shade,
