Snuneymuxw Breaks Ground for New Qwam Qwum Stuwixwulh Community School 2018

Mar. 8/18

After 20 years of dreaming, hosting community meetings and planning, Snuneymuxw is breaking ground to construct a multi-million dollar Qwam Qwum Stuwixwulh School in the Cedar Area of Nanaimo, BC.

Development of a 1814 square meter school building is set to start in April 2018 and to be completed by April 2019. It’s Snuneymuxw’s dream to provide the best education to their community members, and it is also their hope to serve the Nanaimo general population at the same time.

Snuneymuxw Ground Breaking Ceremony took place on Tuesday, March 13th, 2018 at 11:00am at the new site location, 1390 Stuywut Street, corner of Gordon Road and Stuywut Street in Nanaimo, BC.

A number of Snuneymuxw elders, representatives of Snuneymuxw Chief & Council as well as special guests were present.
