Aboriginal Education

The WestShore Aboriginal Education Team commits to work for Aboriginal students in an accountable way in order to nurture, support, mentor and teach students to take pride in their culture, their history and their traditions.

We strive to enrich all students academically by acknowledging, supporting, respecting, honouring and developing their individual potential.
