Principal's Message

Blackburn Elementary School provides a vibrant inclusive learning community for all students.  We are privileged to be located on the stunningly beautiful and unceded ancestral territory of the Lheidli T'enneh.  Our rural setting allows us the luxury of being able to engage in many land based activities.  We are located right beside the Blackburn Community Hall, Blackburn Community Skate Park, Blackburn Community Ball diamonds, and Bittner Park.  We have strong parent engagement through the Blackburn Elementary PAC who actively fund raise for the benefit of all our students.  Our staff is committed to excellence in education, and are continuously engaged in professional learning to continue to support all learners in our classrooms.  We have supports in our school setting such as:  a resource teacher, and LA teacher, a part time school counsellor, a youth care worker, and a staff wide commitment to social emotional learning and teaching students about self regulation, mindset, and the importance of COMMUNITY (our school wide theme for the year).  Currently, we have an enrollment of approximately 265 students with 11 classroom Divisions.
