There are no words to express how profoundly sorry we are to hear of the 215 children found buried in a mass grave on the site of the Kamloops Indian Residential School. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those children, the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc community, and all Indigenous communities across Canada.
With this find, with these facts we can no longer remain oblivious or close our eyes to the pain, suffering and sorrow felt by the First Nations peoples because of the acts supporting their colonization and assimilation.
We join our voices with those who call for truth and the necessary action to return each child to their family and community. We also add our voices to those calling for the continued investigation of Residential School sites so that all lost children may be returned home and buried with dignity in the tradition of their people.
We begin our 2021 Art Season with the Annual School Crossing Show displaying the artistic talents of our Armstrong Spallumcheen Elementary, Middle, and High School students. Come in to view the display and visit our book sale Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Due to Covid-19 we will be unable to host our Annual Festival of Trees.
We know this is a a yearly event enjoyed by all of our community and their visitors through the holiday season and we are sorry that this event like so many others will have to be cancelled.
We will, all things being equal, be back to decorating trees in 2021.
