Consideration, Leadership, Achievement, Sportsmanship and Scholarship is achieved through the support and cooperation of staff, students and community.


In June 2022, the Tsleil-Waututh Nation gifted Seycove Secondary with an Indigenous place-based name, sə́yəmətən

sə́yəmətən was the name of the village located in this area that we now call Strathcona.  sə́yəmətən means “place of good water”.

The Tsleil-Waututh Peoples primarily used ocean routes for transportation, using cedar canoes.  Throughout different seasons of the year, they would travel to different locations throughout the inlet, hunting and harvesting in the bountiful coastal waters and shores.   Their safe journeys relied upon detailed knowledge of the seasons, associated tides, weather patterns, and currents.  “The Place of Good Water” offered travellers a safe haven from storms and tides, and was teeming with ocean life and food.

Welcome to sə́yəmətən, where Seycove resides.
