First Nations Support Worker at Georgia Park is Veronica Billows:

 

Good day, as the First Nations Support Worker I play an integral role in the education of Aboriginal students.  I work directly with students and parents and guardians.  I support students in a variety of ways. For example assisting students in accessing appropriate professional services if necessary, tracking attendance to ensure student success, acting as a liaison between the school and home, I also help arrange cultural activities, field trips, and bring guest speakers into the school.  If I can offer any support or be of assistance to you or your child, please contact me at 250-923-9500 ext. 2529.  I look forward to working with you and your child.
