If you have not had a chance to attend one of Megan's incredibly informative Middle School Open Door sessions, we encourage you to come to the next one for many thoughtful and persuasive insights on the importance of mindfulness.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT: SAM TSURUDA

With a heart as big as her ambition, Sam Tsuruda graduated in 2006 as Mulgrave's first Aboriginal student. Holding a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UVic and a Master's in Public Health from UBC with a focus on Aboriginal health research, Sam knew she wanted a career that would benefit others; thus she followed a path that brought her back to her roots. 

She is now working with Indigenous communities where she is fighting for social justice, working to reduce educational disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and striving for wellness and equity within these communities.
