It is with a heavy heart and great sadness, following the terrible news of the discovery of 215 children who lost their lives on the site of the Kamloops residential school, that we offer our sincere condolences to the families affected by this tragedy, and to the community of the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation.
No child should lose their life while attending school. We therefore renew our commitment to work toward true reconciliation through collaboration with Indigenous communities.
Throughout the year, the CSF is committed to the well-being and development of all its students. In this sense, and with all due respect to Indigenous Peoples, we are working to develop programs that will benefit all our students. In accordance with the Enhancement of Indigenous Education Agreement, we seek to:
- Enhance the self-esteem and pride of all our students
- Enhance academic success and provide a foundation for transition to post-secondary education
- Develop a sense of leadership in order to offer all our students the opportunity to play a role in their communities
To this end, our teams propose and accompany numerous projects in our schools to raise awareness of the traditions and customs of Indigenous Peoples. Resources are also available on the different pages of the website:
