Indigenous Education Program

Clayburn's Indigenous Education Program is guided by our Support Worker: Ms. Sydney Ned, Program Coordinator: Mr. Douglas Williams, and School Administrator: Mrs. Heather Reid.

We typically conduct three large Indigenous field trips yearly including: Learn to Fish (Gr. 6), Sturgeon Fishing (Gr. 7), and Canoeing/Kayaking (Gr. 8).  In addition, we have several smaller field trips including Grouse Mountain (Snowshoeing) and frequent cultural learning experiences (drum making, weaving, dancing, slahal games, cooking, and language lessons). 

Effective September 2020, due to COVID-19, all field trips are on hold.

Update - Fall 2020
Halq’eméylem is the Indigenous language of the local Stó:lō people, and we are hopeful to be offering  Halq’eméylem instruction at Clayburn Middle School beginning Spring 2021.

Check highlights from our 2018-19 Year End Video.


Feel free to contact Mr. Williams (, Mrs. Reid ( or Ms. Ned ( if you have questions or comments about the Clayburn Indigenous Program.
