About Us

Sundance-Bank Elementary is located on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen Peoples, the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. Our school community is grateful to the Lekwungen Peoples for their stewardship of this beautiful land where we live, learn, and play together.

At Sundance-Bank Elementary we put children and families at the heart of everything we do. We strive to create a safe, inclusive, and culturally responsive learning environment where all children feel a sense of belonging and have daily opportunities to be curious and joyful.
