First Nations students in Lake Country honoured at grad ceremony
Three First Nations students at George Elliot Secondary in Lake Country were Central Okanagan School District award winners this year.
The school district held its First Nations graduation ceremony last month with 180 graduating First Nations students being honoured.
Six awards were handed out during the ceremony, and three of them went to First Nations students at George Elliot, according to teacher and Lake Country coun. Rob Geier.
The awards were given representing six traditional Fist Nations spiritual realms. Tyson Oland (physical), Miranda Isnardy (Emotional) and Stephanie Bandura (intellectual) were all honoured at the ceremony.
"We have an amazing First Nations program over at George Elliot," said Geier. "We work really hard with our First Nations students."
Geier made the comments at the Lake Country council meeting, held in Lake Country chambers, June 4, 2013.
