Can you name that school?
The Chilliwack Board of Education is welcoming students, staff and the community to submit name ideas for two new schools set to open in 2021 and 2022.
The integrated arts and technology school, which is scheduled to open September 2021, is located at the former UFV campus. It has yet to be named.
The other school, a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school located on the southside overlooking the Vedder River is slated to open for the 2022/2023 school year. It also needs a name.
“Each school is unique in its purpose and geographical location,” reads the announcement on the Chilliwack School District’s website.
In the naming of schools, consideration should be given to:
-Geographical names which relate to the location of the school
-Words with local Indigenous significance
-Names that speak to the vision/focus/spirit of the school
An overview of each school is provided on the school district’s website with the ‘naming of school’ submission form. People can submit their school name suggestions up until April 3, 2020. There is a separate form for each school.
To submit a name idea, go to sd33.bc.ca.
