Families and Educators Together

Parents and families play a key role in ensuring educational success for their children.  It is our goal to support our parents as partners, to acknowledge they know their child best and to work together to have a positive impact on student well-being and achievement.

Our Principal

Welcome to the Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw School. I am honoured to be your Principal and to work for the Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw Nations.

Our student expectations remain centered around the traditional values of Maya’xala and will help us to continue to help provide a safe and relationally rich atmosphere and to promote respect and responsibility in order to create a conducive learning environment.

We are so fortunate to have a strong team of teachers and staff members. Our staff will continue to have high expectations for student success while balancing that with the emotional, social, academic, and physical needs of all students. Parents and community members play a vital role in the education of their children. When parents, elders, and other community members are engaged and involved, everyone – students, parents, families, teachers, schools, and communities benefit. Together, as partners in our student’s education, we can help our children learn and grow as individuals and strong members of the community.

We hope you partner with us in the learning with us in the learning process. Please take a few minutes to read through our parent handbook and familiarize yourself with the important school information.

Please use this document as a point of reference throughout the school year. As always, if you have any further questions, feel free to call us or to come to the school.
