Summer Student Services


Summer break is coming up and for many that is a great time to relax and enjoy a break in the regular school year. While school is out for the summer, students and families don’t necessarily have access to the same level of support services through our school communities as they do when schools are in session. We’re lucky in the Cowichan Valley in that we have a lot of great services for youth and families through dedicated community partners. If you, or someone you know, needs support throughout the summer months, please see below for fantastic community services that can help.
