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'm Richard Zajchowski, but everyone knows me by my nickname "Zack". I have enjoyed many years of teaching/learning work at various Canadian post-secondary institutions. My first teaching position was as a physics instructor at CEGEP John Abbott College in Quebec. I then moved west to London, Ontario and took up the position of learning skills counsellor at Western University. While there I also completed my MEd in Educational Studies, taught a bit of physics and did research in student problem solving. Together with my learning skills colleagues at Western, I also co-authored the book Learning for Success published by Nelson Canada and now in its 4th edition. In 1995, I moved to Victoria to become a learning skills counsellor at Camosun College. After many years of learning skills work at Camosun, I switched to the Academic and Career Foundations (ACF) department in 2012 where I now teach BEST and upgrading math.
