Minister Jennifer Whiteside honoured us with her presence on a chilly December day in 2021. We also welcomed Stuart Pagaduan, Denise Augustine, Candace Spilsbury, and Robyn Gray - very important people from the Cowichan Valley. We were moved by Minister Whiteside's desire to speak with children, and her curiosity of our love of the B.C. Curriculum. She also took the time to write a beautiful and affirming letter of support to our school community. Huy ch q'u Jennifer.
