Fort Rupert Elementary School - Port Hardy, British Columbia

Fort Rupert Elementary School

Adopted by: Indigospirit Richmond Centre 

Fort Rupert Elementary School is located on the Northern tip of Vancouver Island. We are over 200km from the closest city. We are located on the traditional territory of the Kwakiutl First Nation and serve the children of that nation. Our families are mainly employed by industries such as fishing, logging, and tourism. Recently strong regulations have been placed on sports fishing, many fish farms have been shut down, and the border has been shut which has drastically affected our families relying on logging and tourism. Therefore many of our families are struggling to provide the essentials. Our school is part of a thoughtful community that would give the clothing off its back to help their neighbour.

Our school was built in 1964 and has received very few upgrades except paint. Our wonderful librarian has transformed an old chaotic space into a warm and loving environment. She has put her heart into this space and the students feel it and love it. Many of our books though are as dated as the building itself. With whatever budgets we have we are trying to purchased new resource books, beginner books, novels, storybooks, french versions of those books, and we would love to expand are small First Nation's language (Kwak'wala) section.
