At Seabird Island Community School we believe that the development of the individual child is a partnership between home, school, and community. Throughout our school year we invite parents, grandparents, elders, community & political leaders, as well as family members to become a part of each student’s education. While we prepare our students to become productive members of society, we expose them to First Nations role models, elders, leaders, and cultural workers. This exposure provides our students with a strong sense of First Nations identity or awareness of First Nations culture alongside the core provincial curriculum that is taught at public schools throughout BC.
Our unique intertwining of culture and curriculum prepares our students physically, socially, psychologically, spiritually, and academically. Utilizing small class sizes we are able to offer our students superior, individualized instruction that will support them to be successful in their schoolwork. Our practical approach to education and the cooperative teamwork of our staff, education committee, and community leaders make our programs and educational experiences relevant for our younger generations with a focus on teaching hands-on skills that will benefit our students throughout life.
