Home / School News / Westshore Secondary School – Home of the STḴȺYE!


At the June 28 SD62 Board meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the renaming of Westshore Centre for Training & Learning to Westshore Secondary School specifically for our Colwood & Sooke campuses.  This is huge for our students, staff, and families as it’s another step in the renewal of identity for us.

During this past year the students, staff, and families have been involved in the renewal of our identity focused on both the school name and also the symbol or “mascot” which represents us.  Below is also a thumbnail of our new logo which was co-created by students and local Indigenous artist Jamin Zuroski.

A formal “unveiling” is in the planning stages as we look towards an event in early October to recognize the change and efforts of the school community and Indigenous partners who have worked collaboratively in support of this renewal.

The current Westshore Centre for Training & Learning (Langford) will continue to operate as our hub for Online learning and Continuing Ed (Adult Ed) for the 22-23 school year as our District continues to review our current program status.
