About Us

With deep gratitude and respect, we are honoured to be learning and unlearning on the ancestral and unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) & səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).

Selkirk Annex is in the Kensington-Cedar Cottage community in the center of East Vancouver. Selkirk Annex supports 95 students enrolled in 5 divisions from kindergarten to grade 4. The families at Selkirk Annex are a linguistically diverse group who identify 14 different first languages. Selkirk Annex is an inclusive site for staff, students, and parents. Selkirk Annex is part of the Gladstone Family of Schools and maintains ties with the Selkirk main school and the Gladstone Community Schools Team.

Students have access to both laptops and iPads to extend their learning. Accordingly, students have access to a sensory room and a calming space which supports the regulation of student's nervous system and social emotional wellbeing. Motor and sensory development provide the central nervous system with the ability to perform the many tasks necessary for academic achievement. Access to the sensory room supports the reflexive-vestibular-proprioceptive-tactile systems.

The school maintains several garden beds that are situated on the playground. The garden is maintained by students as part of the development of life skills. The PAC actively supports many school initiatives and programs. They are dedicated to ensuring students and staff have a wide range of support and learning opportunities. The PAC has continued to support in-school programs such as body science for students and parents, as well as supporting a dance program. This year, the PAC continues to promote Selkirk Annex t-shirts, sweaters and bags to help promote school spirit and bring visibility to the community. The PAC continues to hold various fundraising campaigns and attends various events such as Sports Day and Welcome to Kindergarten, to boost membership.
