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 Thu Robertson for her donation in support of free salad bars for Lake Trail Community Middle School Students for the month of March!

As an accomplished Lake Trail Junior Secondary 1994 graduate, we are fortunate to have Thu actively involved at Lake Trail Community Middle School today as the PAC Chair and as LTCES’s Treasurer. She is further involved in the community as the Treasurer for the Comox Valley Geek Society. Thu understands the importance of bringing food literacy into our schools and we thank her for the support!
