Our commitments

Decolonization & Indigenization

Our School is situated on the homelands of the Stó:lō (people of the river) in what is now referred to as Mission, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack. The Stó:lō Peoples have an intrinsic relationship with Stó:lō Temexw (Stó:lō land); therefore, we express our gratitude and respect for the honour of living and working in this place. We strive to support Indigenous learners and decolonize our practices through de-centering Western ways of teaching and learning. We seek to incorporate Indigenous Ways of Knowing into the environments we create.

Social justice & anti-racism

Social Justice, as one of the five School Values, is a tenet that we expect all faculty, staff,  students, and teacher candidates to uphold. This value will be demonstrated through the ways in which we work together, and the ways in which we work with children. We will create inclusive learning environments that are ethical and safe by using individualized and equitable approaches that engage learners and include their voices, and by exposing gaps in education and curriculum that serve to minimize or marginalize children, students, and teachers.
