Welcome to Kwíyeqel Secondary School
Kwiyeqel Secondary is now in full swing. After three weeks of polling and voting we are excited to announce that our new nickname will be the Kodiaks, and that our primary colour will be red. The Kwiyeqel Kodiaks has a nice ring to it. Kwiyeqel is the Halq’emeylem word for the phrase “to climb a hill or mountain,” and adding Secondary School to the end honours the work that our staff and students do daily.
Based on the Public Health COVID19 Protocols we are running two independent sites. Our Main Site (Elm Drive) has 5 unique Programs, while our South Site (Prest Road) has 3 unique programs. The Main Site is home to Explorations (Grade 9), Outdoor Education, Culinary Arts, Expressive Arts, & Compass. Our South Site has Sustainable Resources, Mindfulness, and the Trades Discovery Program. Each site is offering elective courses in the afternoon to help students meet both their personal interests and graduation requirements.
Kwiyeqel Secondary is proud to offer programming to students across the entire Chilliwack School District and aims to provide students with unique learning opportunities for their path to graduation. We provide additional support to students above and beyond what a student would receive in a typical bricks and mortar secondary school. Please contact the school for further information.
