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.

I have just celebrated my 20-year milestone of teaching at the college. Though teaching has its rewards, I also enjoy administrative activities. Currently, I am Co-Chair of ELD and Chair of Basic ESL (BESL) stream within the ELD department. I have an open-door policy where students, faculty and staff are welcome to have a conversation with me about matters that are important to them. If you have questions about, or need help with, ESL matters, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I will do my best to help you or direct you to those who can.
