The club recently voted to print 100 copies (3 classroom sets plus 10 spared) of each of the books pictured here. They will be used by the three Hul’qumi’num teachers in SD68 each of whom rotate through a number of classrooms.  All three have seen sample copies of the books and are excited to be able to begin using them starting next September.
The SD68 Multicultural and Race Relations Committee, chaired by member Bill Robinson, a trustee, is working to introduce more Hul’qumi’num language and culture into the district’s schools through introducing more Hul’qumi’num signage and verbal language into the day to day experience of students. Our club has also provided volunteers at two Truth and Reconciliation events this year, which has helped to move this goal forward.
