Superintendent’s Message

I am excited to join the Fraser-Cascade School District as your new Superintendent of Schools. I recognize that our district has a foundation of healthy relationships, community pride and a caring and compassionate atmosphere. It has been a fantastic introduction. I am a parent of four adult daughters who have all benefited from our public-school system. My wife is also a teacher. I filter my decisions through the lenses of that of a parent and educator. As your incoming superintendent, my goal is to work together with our community to support our most valuable resource, our students.

The Fraser-Cascade School District has a rich history of community pride, talented, dedicated and compassionate students and caring parents. We are nestled in one of the most beautiful areas of British Columbia. It includes Harrison Hot Springs, the District of Kent, including Agassiz. It extends up the Fraser River from there to the town of Hope and up the southern section of the Fraser Canyon along Highway 1 to the communities of Yale and Boston Bar. The people I have met are proud of their communities and their schools. We are honoured to have thirteen bands as part of our School District including:

Boothroyd Indian Band

Boston Bar First Nations

Chawathil First Nations

Cheam First Nations

Peters Indian Band

Seabird Island Indian Band

Shwx’owhamel First Nation

Spuzzum First Nation

Sq’ewa:lxw First Nation

Sq’ewlets First Nation


Union Bar Band

Yale First Nation

Our district motto is “Everyone Pulling Together to Improve the Achievement of all Learners.” I look forward to living this motto in my new role.

Mr. Balan Moorthy, Superintendent of Schools
