Aboriginal Grad an Amazing Success!

I had the privilege of attending the Aboriginal Grad yesterday afternoon at the Lansdowne campus of Camosun College in the new Na’tsa’maht centre. What an impressive structure built from the design ideas of Butch Dick. Grads, families, friends and education staff all had a wonderful time recognizing the achievements of these special people.

Highlights this year include the graduation of Russell Chipps, Chief of SC’Ianew and a amusing and insightful keynote address by Andrew Robinson.

This year, we are celebrating 51 Aboriginal, First Nations and Metis Graduates. The ceremony was followed by a reception in an adjoining building. I would like to thank Kathleen King-Hunt and the amazing Ab Ed staff for organizing such a wonderful celebration. I would also like to acknowledge all the teachers, Principals and Vice Principals that were on hand. – Jim Cambridge
