A Message from the Principal



Principals’ Message:

Welcome to Cowichan Secondary School – a place to learn, form

friendships, and have fun. Staff and students at Cowichan Secondary work, learn, and

play each day on the unceded territory of the Quw’utsun people. Our amazing staff

works hard to provide challenging academic programs, extensive opportunities for

students in the arts, trades, tech and athletics, and to continue a strong commitment to

excellence. We strive to honour the traditions of the past all the while creating innovations

for the future. We encourage students to take advantage of these opportunities and we

will do everything we can to help students be successful.


Together students are learning, discovering, taking risks and developing life-long

friendships in an environment that is safe, caring, supportive and responsive. Our

Mission and Vision for the school can be found on the next page. These were written by

students! We will strive to make that Mission and Vision a reality. To help with this, the

school encourages parents and guardians to be supportive of the school’s policies and

encourages parental involvement as needed and as appropriate.


If you want to stay up to date on all things happening at Cowichan Secondary, be sure to

check out the “Thursday Thunder” each week. This can be found on our website, as well

as a link will go out through our school App.


Thank You!
