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.

Lynda started teaching at Camosun in 2012 and has taught first and second year clinical and theory classes.

She originally graduated from one of the last classes of diploma nurses from the Royal Jubilee School of Nursing and later went on to complete her BSN at the University of Victoria. She has had a Masters of Nursing degree from Athabasca University underway over the last few years and will be completing it in the near future.

Lynda is most at home at the bedside and has provided nursing care for medical/surgical patients in Victoria and smaller up island hospitals, as well as providing palliative care and symptom management for clients on the Victoria Hospice Inpatient Unit. She greatly valued being part of the interdisciplinary palliative care team and hopes to instill her passion for holistic, compassionate, client-centered care to the next generation of nurses.
