Home / About / Principal’s Message


Welcome to Journey Middle School!

Our school is a vibrant and busy place to learn, and I believe strongly in the children in our community receiving the best education possible. We are delighted to see all of the familiar faces and welcome our new students to our school and the community of Sooke.  My family has been going to and/or teaching in Sooke schools for seven generations, and I am proud to call Sooke my home.

At Journey we believe we can enhance the learning opportunities for all children by actively encouraging community connections, exploring the amazing nature that surrounds us, and building relationships that will last a lifetime. School may look a little different than when you went to school and you are always welcome to ask questions. Journey’s Vision Statement is, “People Run to be Here” and I extend an invitation to all to stop by and see why!
