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.

Hello, my name is Sarah Elizabeth Chisholm.  I joined the Camosun College team in 2012 as an instructor for the Health Care Assistant Program.  My role involves teaching students in both classroom and clinical settings, course and curriculum development, class management as well as maintaining student engagement. I have also assisted with the Practical Nursing clinicals.

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Nursing with a Minor in International Studies with an Associates Diploma in Biology from the University of Northern British Columbia and Bachelor of Biology from St. Francis Xavier University.  Further education includes a Provincial Instructors Diploma Program for Adult Education and CHICA Introductory Infection Control Course.

My professional experiences include working as a Registered Nurse for Vancouver Island Health Authority since 2011.  Some of the positions during my time as nurse include Residential Care at multiple Victoria locations, a position as an Infection Control Practitioner while my current employment is at Victoria General Hospital in Orthopaedics.

Some of my activities and interests include training and competing in triathlon on the west coast while I used to play Rugby in Prince George and Victoria.  In 2014 I was fortunate to travel and observe 3rd year RN students practicum in Namibia.  During that time I visited numerous other places in Africa.  My love for traveling has lead to many places such as Spain, Morocco, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Britain, France, the Netherlands, Croatia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina
