Indigenous Ed


Discovery Elementary recognizes, and gives thanks, that we work, live, and play on the traditional lands of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the lands of the Malahat and Quw’utsun peoples. We dedicate our work to the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, and all children in the Cowichan Valley School District.
