High school graduation rates for Indigenous students are still far below those of non-Indigenous

individuals, and we’re determined to provide every student with the support they need to complete their studies and graduate happy, healthy, and ready to embark on a fulfilling life and career.

An enormous part of helping Indigenous students relies on our school having

a good relationship with their families.  As part of the path towards Truth and Reconciliation it is vital that we honour Indigenous culture and ways of knowing in order to truly support struggling students.  As part of that, we will be hosting two Indigenous family dinners this school year to strengthen relationships with and trust between our school and our families.

We strongly believe that this is a vital step in creating a safe, welcoming environment for Indigenous students and their families and that it will help to create a solid foundation for the continual improvement of outcomes for these amazing young people.
