Welcome to Cowichan Secondary Dual Campus!

Teacher Job Action

School will not re-open until the current labour situation has been settled. Once we know that the proposed deal has been voted on, we expect to be able to announce Opening Day Plans.

TIMETABLES will not be given out until Opening Day.

Please see the letter posted on the school district website.

School start-up information will also depend on the timing of a settlement in the labour dispute.


Due to the uncertainty surrounding the current labour dispute, we will NOT be mailing student timetables home. Timetables will be distributed on opening day at each campus. Please check the news, this web site, and our Facebook or Twitter feeds for updates and changes to the current labour situation.


Grad 2014 Diploma 
If you graduated in June, your Graduation Diploma is here! You can pick-up diplomas starting Tuesday, August 26th between 10AM and 2PM each day (if you don't mind crossing a picket line). Diplomas can also be picked up every school day after the strike is over.


June Report cards (10,11,12) can be picked up when the school offices re-open in late August.



School bus registration needs to be done each year for each student who wishes to ride the bus. Forms and information for the 2014-2015 school year can be found on the SD79 web site under Transportation. New bus routes will be posted online in August.  Please register at
