New Site Announced for 2nd Annual Community Trek

We are going to gather as a Community in our Traditional Territory to reconnect with the land and take part in our culturally relevant activities.  ʔaq'am is looking at making this Trek an annual event with the hopes that each year will only get bigger and better. We believe community treks build better relationships which foster our strengths as a community, as families and as individuals.

ʔaq'am Celebrates Another Successful Awards Day

The 2013 Awards Day was held on June 27th at the Kinsman Quad Park in Cranbrook.  This day is all about honouring our students for all of the hard work they do throughout the school year.  Every person has something they are good at and we at ʔaq'am acknowledge all of our students from Early-Learning to Post-Secondary.  This year was an exceptional year with 17 students recognized as “Overall Achievers” within various categories such as: excellence in attendance, attitude, effort, participation and academic achievement.
