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.

Centre for Indigenous Education and Community Connections

I started at Camosun College as a student in the First Nations Teacher Assistant Program (1989) and went on to work at the Saanich Adult Education Centre, one of our community learning partners. I'm committed to listening to students and helping them to discover their full potential through education.

The years have just flown by—perhaps because I'm really passionate about my work!
