Mission Statement:

The Norgate Xwemélch’stn learning community works together to support students’ academic, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual well-being.  We strive to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring people who demonstrate intercultural respect and understanding.

This statement aligns with our values as educators and articulates a vision for the skills and dispositions we aim to help your children develop.  Through partnership with you, their families, we will support your children’s well-being and help them find balance.  And, by providing them rich learning experiences at school and in the community we can share our collective wisdom and expand the children’s capacity to think critically and creatively, so that they may choose to act compassionately. 

We are an International Baccalaureate Candidacy School offering the Primary Years Programme.

    National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a day for all Canadians to commemorate the history and legacy of the residential school system. It’s a day to honour the resilience, dignity and strength of survivors and intergenerational survivors and remember the children who never came home. It's a chance to engage and educate people about B.C.'s colonial history and how it has and continues to impact Indigenous communities.” (Source)

    National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is observed annually on September 30. It is a statutory holiday in British Columbia; schools will be closed on Monday, October 2, 2023. 

    Note: September 30 is also Orange Shirt Day.
