Home: Welcome

"Something that sets Sunrise apart from other schools is the ethic of care. We have felt that our children are well cared for in all aspects of their being through specific, concrete actions and responses taken by all staff, as well as through a general attentiveness and tuning into the children's needs, growth edges and strengths."

What parents say

“It’s difficult to put into words just what Sunrise means to us as a family. It’s our second home. It’s a safe place for our kiddos to be themselves… We feel very fortunate to be a part of this community and so thankful to the teachers who see who our children are and help nurture them on their path to self-discovery.”

Can you make it?

We offer the following territorial acknowledgement as an intentional act for acknowledging the injustices committed to Indigenous peoples in this land now called Canada and for committing ourselves individually and collectively as a school to the path of Truth and Reconciliation.  As settlers, we wish to engage respectfully and meaningfully with the local Indigenous communities, as well as understand the implications of being uninvited guests on occupied territory.  We apologize for any mistakes or omissions we may inadvertently make, as we recognize that we are on a learning journey. 

Territorial acknowledgement: 
Our school stands on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Hul’q’umi’num (Hul-ka-MEE-num) speaking-peoples of Quw’utsun (Kow-WUT-sun) (the Cowichan Valley).  This territory is shared by the Halalt (Ha-lalt), Stz’uminus (Tz-MAY-nus / Sh-MAY-nus), Hwlitsum, Ts’uubaa-asatx (Tsoo-bah-seht), Lyackson (Lay-IK-sen), Penelakut (Pen-EL-ah-kut) and Quw'utsun (Kow-WUT-sun) First Nations whose immemorial  presence in this sacred land we honour today.  We acknowledge with gratitude and respect all the ancestors of this land in which we are very fortunate to live, work, and learn.
