Celebrating Our Students
Walker Development Centre is a ‘storefront’ school which offers an alternate learning site for secondary-aged students. Over the past 5 years, 22 students have graduated from the Centre. School District 51 and Walker Development Centre would like to establish a scholarship program for students moving on to post-secondary training or into the work force. To this end, we would like to offer businesses, service clubs, organizations and individuals the opportunity to participate in the program by providing funds for the establishment of a scholarship program at Walker Development Centre.
If you or your group/organization/business would be interested in providing a scholarship for students at the Walker Development Centre, please contact:
Doug Lacey, Principal, Walker Development Centre, 250-442-8258
Kevin Argue, Superintendent of Schools, 250-442-8258
