Established in 2019, QQS is open to everyone (elementary to grade 7), as all children benefit from Snuneymuxw knowledge.
School curriculum prioritizes traditional Snuneymuxw teachings, supported by contemporary and ancestral technology. We strive to support all aspects of education, going beyond intellect alone.
In 2019, Snuneymuxw First Nation and Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools signed an unprecedented memorandum of agreement (MOA) that formalizes our unique co-governance Joint Committee. The Committee assumes operational responsibility for the Snuneymuxw Qwam Qwum Stuwixwulh Community School, congruent with honouring Snuneymuxw land and culture.
