Grand Opening Chief Atahm School Expansion

By Jo Anne Malpass
The grand opening of the expansion of Chief Atahm High School (CAS) and Language Centre at the Adams Lake Indian Reserve brought dignitaries and residents together August 15 for a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The Minister of Indigenous Services Seamus O'Regan, Okanagan Shuswap MP Mel Arnold, Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone and Adams Lake Indian Band Chief Cliff Arnouse were welcomed by CAS students, teachers, councillors and residents.
The school building expansion project is the result of years of research, planning and development. Adams Lake Indian Band (ALIB) and parents raised money for the project and joined with the Federal government, with supplemental funding received from Indigenous Services Canada. The School Expansion Project Team includes representatives from ALIB, Chief Atahm School, Horizon North Modular Solutions and Associated Engineering.
