Minister Philpott congratulates Snuneymuxw First Nation on new school groundbreaking

Fri. Mar. 16/18

“Our government is proud to work in partnership with First Nations to support vibrant learning environments that foster cultural identity for their students. Congratulations to the Snuneymuxw First Nation on the groundbreaking of the new Qwam Qwum Stuwixwulh Elementary that will provide quality education in a new and modern facility for the next generation of leaders.”

The Honourable Jane Philpott
Minister of Indigenous Services

“It is a historical day for Snuneymuxw to build a new state of the art education facility for our children. Over the years we have accommodated our current education facility with make-shift buildings that have exhausted their life-span. Now we have an opportunity to provide our children, with the help of staff, council and community with a new educational facility that will enable them to reach their goals of higher education. It is our greatest priority to support all aspects of education for our children moving forward.”

Chief Mike Wyse
