Expanded lineup of community programming at Courtenay school

The Lake Trail Community Education Society is working alongside facilitators and partner organizations to offer an expanded lineup of community programming out of Lake Trail Community Middle School, January through March.

A number of free or by donation events and workshops promoting inter-generational learning and community building are lined up, including a Waste Free Lunches workshop, guided walking tours in Morrison Creek, a Watershed Café where participants learn about the watershed and participate in a mapping and art project, artist talks, and our quarterly community potluck.

Our new Community Art Night drop-ins provide a positive space for families and community members to connect while making arts and crafts. Participants are invited to bring projects or work from supplies which LTCES has on hand. For the winter session, we are pleased to offer instruction on journal making, mini-tapestry weaving, and slow stitch sashiko. All ages are welcome, and no experience is necessary.

Registered evening classes include a NIA Dance Workout program, Breathing 101, Yoga 101, Healthy Gourmet Dips, a Pi(e) Baking Workshop on International Pi Day, Community Ukulele, and six diverse garden workshops. Community programs are offered at accessible pricing and bursaries are available if cost is a barrier.

Visit for full program descriptions, registration, and to learn more about the community school model and opportunities for involvement.
