SCIDES proudly honours the history and traditions of BC’s First Nations by offering our students the opportunity to attend various First Nations events throughout the school year. Those opportunities are available to our local students within School District 58. They contribute to the appreciation of Aboriginal ancestry and traditions and help non-Aboriginal students gain a better understanding of First Nations culture.
Events include guest speakers, workshops and visits to First Nation sites and we continually strive to expand our Aboriginal Education program.
In addition to the events, SCIDES employs an Aboriginal Student Support Teacher, who provides a number of services to First Nations students, such as academic, personal and home-school support, cultural group activities and information about unique opportunities available to Aboriginal students.
