Principal’s Message


Frances Kelsey Secondary School, in partnership with the students, parents and the community, is dedicated to developing the individual potential of each student. By providing a co-operative, safe and caring environment, we encourage students to be self-motivated, self-directed, responsible citizens and life-long learners.

Welcome to Frances Kelsey Secondary! We are proud to serve students from throughout the Cowichan Valley, providing a wide variety of learning opportunities.

The FKSS program is built upon a structure where students are challenged to meet course expectations and take a role in organizing their time and assignments. We also have developed a number of programs that focus on outdoor education, careers, hands on learning and community based projects.

Further, we are proud of our student support network at the school that starts with our daily Teacher-Advisor for all students. We then offer added supports to students through our Counselling team, the Learning Assistance teachers and Resource program. Working with parents and guardians, we want to provide the best service and attention for our students that we can give.

We are proud of the variety of courses and programs we offer, but more importantly we are proud of the success of the students.

Mr. Jeff Rowan, Principal
