Fort Rupert Elementary School (FRES) is located at 5520 Beaver Harbour Road, 10km southeast of Port Hardy, on the traditional unceded territory of the Kwakiutl First Nation. The school is surrounded by parks, backed by forest, and is a short walk away from Storey’s beach. We are honoured and proud to live and learn in such a beautiful territory.

We would like to recognize the Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and peoples from Kwakwa̱ka̱’wakw Nations, who share these traditional territories with us so we can live, learn, work, and play side-by-side. We also want to acknowledge our people who have come before, our ancestors who have guided us and taught us how to live on these lands in a good way.
