Call for Indigenous Artists
This call aims to work with local Indigenous artists to increase the cultural presence of the Tsimshian Nation in Veritas School. The Veritas School students of Tsimshian ancestry will see their history reflected in their school and non-Tsimshian students, families, and community members will learn from the increased culture presence of the Tsimshian Nation. As a Catholic school, displaying Tsimshian art, created by local artists, in conjunction with land acknowledgment, is a step down the path of Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation.
Please click on the school logo to the left to download more information. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tamara Berg at email@example.com or 250-635-3035.
CISPG Schools - Accessibility
All eight CISPG Schools initiated a local School Committee and together completed the 9 page School Physical Accessibility Audit Checklist in June 2023. Priorities for the physical plant were identified to share with staff in term 1 of the 2023-24 school year. There will be plans to reconvene a school-based Accessibility Committee as per the Ministry's guidelines and have an initial meeting by Oct. 30, 2023.
Some highlights of priorities in schools for 2023-24 include signage for handicap parking, development of sensory rooms, updated door handles, and access by suitable ramps.
For more information about the Accessibility Plan, contact Mrs. Tamara Berg, Veritas School Principal, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-641-2172.
