Ten years after our school was given the Musqueam name, stəywəte:n, our school has a new sign bearing the full name: Point Grey Secondary: stəywəte:n
A congenial gathering of First Nations students, Musqueam and VSB representatives, staff, and parents enjoyed refreshments following a few brief speeches in the staffroom on Tuesday afternoon. Speakers, including Ms. Faye Mitchell, Musqueam Education Coordinator, Mr. Ken Annandale, VSB Consultant (and, principal at Point Grey at the time of the original ceremony), and Mr. Randy Clark, Principal, spoke in appreciation of the motivation, effort and fundraising that resulted in the new sign that now properly and proudly displays Point Grey Secondary stəywəte:n School to the immediate and larger community. Tuesday, May 20th, 2008 marked the 10th anniversary of the formal ceremony naming Point Grey Secondary stəywəte:n. The Musqueam name stəywəte:n [StyWetTan] was given to Point Grey on May 20th, 1998 after the name was bestowed on the UBC First Nations House of Learning to form a connection between the secondary and post-secondary schools.
The new sign with an energy efficient, low maintenance, electronic LED message board was installed at Point Grey stəywəte:n at the end of February on the corner of
PAC contributed the new sign to address the need for presenting stəywəte:n to the school and general public as noted at a PAC meeting held at the Musqueam Band Office. The new message board addressed convenience and safety concerns. The sign and message board also honours the Learning Initiative/Appreciative Inquiry goals of inclusion and improved communication while fitting the criteria of how PAC funds can be spent.
