Lake Trail Community Middle School: A neighbourhood centre accessible to all.

What is a Community School?

A Community School takes one of the largest and most under-utilized public facilities, the public school, and increases the investment by keeping it open evenings, weekends and during the summer for community activities.

Through multi-ministry funding and non-profit partnerships, community schools address the needs of all age groups, with programs for pre-school children, after school care, and adult education and recreation. The expanded mandate of the educational system in recent years has strengthened the potential of community schools in British Columbia.

Many thanks to Budget Blinds for their generous donation in support of February’s free salad bars for Lake Trail Community Middle School Students.

As a locally-owned business, Budget Blinds is focused on supporting the community and giving back. We are so grateful for their support! 

Barrier-free access to nutrition and food literacy is our priority.  While many schools charge a nominal fee to cover expenses, Lake Trail’s salad bar remains free of charge.
