Lake Trail Community Education Society
Special Resolution Meeting and AGM
Are you curious about community schools? Lake Trail Community Education Society is delighted to welcome guest speaker Sukh Shergill as he presents a 20-minute Community Education 101 as a part of our online annual general meeting on Wednesday, November 25th, from 6:30pm – 7:45pm.
With over 15 years of leadership experience in education and community planning, Shergill has been contracted to support the BC Community Schools Advisory Committee (BCCSAC), a United Way partnership, that is a strategic advisory group comprised of key stakeholders and interested parties in Community Education and Community Schools. The presentation on November 25th will highlight the four pillars of community education and the exciting potential for growing this movement in our communities.
The Lake Trail Community Education Society Annual General Meeting follows the presentation. We look forward to sharing our work over the past year enriching the well-being of children, families, and the community through our three areas of focus; after school and youth, healthy communities, and garden and healthy foods, as well as some of the challenges faced through this unprecedented time.
We will also review our annual reports, hold our board election, and share some exciting updates about the new school and community garden. Virtual ‘door prizes’ at the AGM include Lush Valley’s Backyard Blend apple juice boxes, a gift certificate to the Local Refillery, and a cookbook from Uplifters Shop!

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.
In 2019, Lake Trail Middle School and Lake Trail Community Education Society (LTCES) received official community school designation. The development of Lake Trail Community Middle School moving forward is a collaborative partnership between Lake Trail Community Education Society and Lake Trail Middle School.
Our Mission: Lake Trail Community Education Society promotes an integrated focus on lifelong learning, healthy lifestyles, community development and engagement leading to improved learning, stronger families and a healthier community. Lake Trail Community Middle School strives to be a neighbourhood centre accessible to everyone.
