Wear orange on Monday, May 31

We honour the 215 First Nations children and babies who were students of the Kamloops Indian Residential School that were recently discovered, on the property, in an unmarked mass grave. 

On Monday, May 31, we invite everyone to wear orange. Every child matters.

Thank you, Ms. Gwilliam!

Oh, Ms. Gwilliam, what will we do without you?! Ms. Gwilliam retires at the end of June. She has been our fearless and dedicated Community Coordinator for 11 years, responsible for writing grants, working with families, supporting students, partnering with our School Community Council... and truly everything in between. Even in a large school like ours, every single student (from our Pre-Kinders all the way up to our almost-finished Grade 8s) can tell you all about her!
