Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Academic Upgrading - Community Learning Partnerships

School of Access

I began supporting students in the School of Access in 2007 as an Instructional Assistant in English Language Development. Since that time, I have also worked in Academic and Career Foundations for 8 years and as an English, Mathematics and Computer Studies Instructor in Community Learning Partnerships. I am very proud of the relationships I have built and maintained at five of our partnership sites. I am honoured to continue my engagement with the School of Access, the College, and above all, the communities in which we so graciously serve and support students.
