Hello I am Jackie Jack, I am currently running for School Trustee here in Gold River. I have been a resident for past 9 years. I am married to Ben Jack JR. We have 4 children and 2 grandsons, 3 of our children have completed high school 2 here and 1 in Nanaimo.
I am a former School District #68 CUPE Aboriginal Education Assistant For 12 years, during that time I was a union shop steward also member on the Aboriginal CUPE BC committee helped form it. I have a Diploma in General Studies and Adult Aboriginal Learning Facilitators Certificate from Thompson Rivers University out of Kamloops B.C. I obtained them via the distance learning program. I am also a strong believer in giving back and serving communities I live in – this is my chance to give back. In Nanaimo when my oldest son belonged to Beavers I became a leader, I also held a seat on the Board of Directors at Nanaimo Boys & Girls club. I also was a PAC member at Bayview Elementary and now at RWES. I currently work for Nuu-Chah-nulth tribal council as Early Years Outreach Worker. I have support from my employer if I am to be successful to take days off as necessary for Trustee work.
I believe all students are individual learners and learn in their own ways and we need to respect that not a one size fits all approach works. I believe our students need to feel safe in all forms while attending school. We need to bridge some existing gaps in this school system in various areas, we need our students to be given the best education possible. The students are our future leaders in all aspects. As a community it is our responsibility to help foster this growth and a lot of this happens during their school years. I support life long learning, personal education and growth. I support change and progress in schools for students to gain the skills they need to become successful contributing youth in society. I would love the opportunity to be a liaison for schools and parents, to hear parents voice concerns and wishes for their child’s education, increase parent’s presence in schools, help them feel welcome – these are our schools and we all belong there, and an open flow of communication between home and schools.
I am willing to be a sounding board and share. I am going to be at the all candidates meeting to answer any questions you may have. My contact email mrsjjack [at] me [dot] com.

On Tuesday October 7th, GRSS Teacher Katrina Kornylo received a Certificate of Achievement from the 2014 Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence!
You can read more about Mrs. Kornylo and her achievements in our high school in her official bio on the Government of Canada website: Katrina Korynylo. However, the quote from a student says it all:
“Mrs. Kornylo loves her job more than anyone else that we know. Her passion for math and science is beyond comprehension; so when she takes it into the classroom, it makes a much more exciting environment for students to experience.”
