Tuesday, Nov. 14, the first meeting of the Richmond school trustees since the civic election started with a traditional greeting from Indigenous Elder Roberta Price, welcoming the trustees to the traditional territory of Musqueam People.
After a welcome by Sherry Elwood, district superintendent, Brighouse Elementary School choir, under the direction of teacher Robin Anderson, led attendees in the singing of O Canada. The Brighouse choir then offered a second song for the assembled trustees and guests.
Once the trustees were sworn in, Ken Hamaguchi was elected as chairperson and Sandra Nixon was re-elected as vice-chairperson of the board.
