Invitation – VWS Indigenous Council

October 2019

Indigenous families, parents and guardians of Indigenous students, including former students, alumni and members of the wider VWS community, are warmly invited to an upcoming informal gathering to meet, connect and discuss the continued development of the VWS Indigenous Council. (date and location to be confirmed)

This gathering is specifically for Indigenous families, including non-Indigenous parents and guardians of Indigenous children. The Council was formed to support the Indigenization of the VWS, the implementation of Ministry of Education curriculum requirements, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. At this gathering, participants will have the chance to share experiences, exchange ideas, and decide upon the next steps for the Council this school year.

Everyone in the VWS community is kindly requested and encouraged to help support this special gathering by spreading the word and reaching out to old classmates and extended family and guardians of old classmates to let them know about the event. For more information, please contact Mary Henley, Community and Resource Development Manager, at mhenley at vws.ca or 604-985-7435 x226.
