School District 70: Rosemarie Buchanan - Trustee candidate

  • Nov. 7, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Rosemarie Buchanan has called the Alberni Valley home for 35 years, and has served the district as a school trustee for 18 of those years. Her son is a graduate of ADSS (Class of ’99) and works in the Ministry of International Trade in Vancouver.

Some of her accomplishments on school board are having pesticides banned in the district, getting four additional classrooms and a foods/textiles room in the new high school.  She volunteers weekly at VAST, where she participates in a successful knitting program with the students.

Rosemarie believes in the value of the six Alberni Valley elementary schools and has a plan to fill them with Alberni Valley students. She will be presenting that plan to the board in time for budget deliberations.

Public education is the cornerstone of our society.  Every student should be able to reach her or his greatest potential, and that means educating the entire person. Rosemarie’s committed to continue advocating for funding to educate the whole child, hand in hand with families and the community.  Education is about all students graduating with the foundations necessary to reach their fullest potential as citizens of Canada.  With your continued support, we can see that happen.
