Just Released! Best of 24 Hour Drum 2020 Documentary

A celebration of Sea to Sky's Indigenous Youth Council's work from 2015 - 2020 is brought together in this compilation of highlights. The Youth Council is a district wide group who work throughout the year to support the local community through volunteering and awareness advocacy. The year culminates in the annual 24 Hour Drum event, youth led and youth driven, a powerful vision of youth taking action to make the changes they see are needed in the world. This year, with the event cancelled due to Covid19, the documentary draws on footage taken during the planning of the event early in the year, and past events, to tell a powerful story of the fight against racism.

Principal's Message

Sea to Sky School District has a clear mission: the success of all students. The District has high expectations for excellence across the curriculum—in academics, athletics, fine arts and career programs. There is also a keen awareness that students learn best in a safe, secure and respectful environment supported by strong connections between school and community.
 
The School District is unique in the diverse communities it serves. There are three major population centres: Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton. The District also serves six Aboriginal communities: Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw, Lil’wat Nation, N’Quatqua Band, Samhquam Ucwalmicw, Skatin Nations, Xa’xtsa and the Metis, Inuit and Off-Reserve Aboriginal Nations.
 
Even though each community has its own unique set of needs and interests, there is a spirit of collaboration at work in the District reflected in our vision statement:
 
“Students love to learn here!”
