Public Works Day

Public Works came to us this year! The grade 4 students were treated to a truck parade, had the chance to climb inside and ask many important questions about the important work done by Public Works.

Salmon Release - Paula Lock's Class

Our class reared and released 53 Coho salmon fry into the Mamquam spawning channels. Students had the opportunity to watch the beginning stages of the salmon lifecycle in our classroom tank. In the wild these changes are hidden beneath the redd, the protected nest a female salmon carefully builds for her eggs. On the day of our release we spotted many wild coho fry in the channels; a sign of a healthy habitat. Each fry was given a special name as it was released into the water.

Bike Rodeo

Recently, the Rotary Club of Squamish visited Mamquam to offer the Bike Rodeo program, a bike skills and safety program that is fun for the children and promotes healthy commuting to school by bike. It was great to be back again, after the two-year interruption due to COVID-19! Thank you for helping Squamish Rotary provide this important service.

We invite you to Celebrate Átl'ka7tsem/ Howe Sound with us, this World Oceans Day!

The United Nations theme: Revitalization - Collective Action for the Ocean.
United Nations World Oceans Day (unworldoceansday.org)

Here in our backyard, in Átl'ka7tsem/ Howe Sound, we have seen what meaningful action can look like. With changes to our human behaviour, the work of many environmental advocates, and stronger environmental legislation, life has returned to Howe Sound. From the smallest of creatures up to Sea Lions, Orcas and even the spotting of Humpback Whales; this watershed is healing.
