Norgate Xwemélch’stn Community Elementary
North Vancouver School District
Squamish Language and Culture

A component of our curriculum has been the offering of Squamish Language classes for the Indigenous students at Norgate.  Instruction is available for students in Grades 5 - 7.  This class is taught by a Squamish Language Teacher.  Indigenous students in the upper intermediate grades will replace French Language exposure classes with Squamish Language classes.  During the Spring of 2021, Squamish language classes were also offered to students in the primary grades.

We are proud to be working with Squamish Language teacher, Victoria Fraser. Her work is vital to the success of the school learning community.
