Have you heard the great news…?

We Wai Kai and Wei Wai Kum First Nations together with School District 72 Campbell River are exploring options for a Kindergarten Immersion-experience in Liq’wala/Kwak’wala starting September 2019.


What Does this Mean?

Indigenous and non-Indigenous students residing in Campbell River school district entering Kindergarten will have the opportunity to experience a Kindergarten program which follows the B.C. provincial curriculum, while being immersed in the language to promote early language acquisition. The program will include a qualified language teacher and a qualified kindergarten teacher.


We Need Your Help

We need to hear your ideas so we can create the best program possible for School District 72 children. To have input into the development of a plan, please come to one of the Open Houses in October. School District 72, We Wai Kai and Wei Wai Kum will host these meetings cooperatively.


Meeting Times and Locations:

• Wednesday October 17, 6:00 p.m. Quinsam Hall Board Room, 2005 Eagle Drive

• Wednesday October 24, 6:00 p.m. Thunderbird Hall Board Room, 1420 Weiwaikum Road

• Saturday October 27, 1:00 p.m. Lions Hall at Willow Point, 2165 South Island Hwy.


Please mark your calendars and share this information among friends and family so that there will be enough students to begin the program.
