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.

Sheet Metal and Metal Fabrication

School of Trades and Technology

 

I have been in the sheet metal industry for 28 years working in everything from running large commercial projects, to owning my own small residential company, and everything in between. I started teaching sheet metal in Saskatoon Saskatchewan at Sask Poly, and through them, I was able to get my diploma for adult education with the University of Regina. I was fortunate enough to be able to continue my teaching career here at Camosun College and I truly love it.
