Lake Trail Community Education Society AGM upcoming

Lake Trail Community Education Society has been building community out of Lake Trail Middle School for close to a decade. Last year marked its first year as a School District 71 designated community school, proving to be an exciting time of transition for the society and the school.

“The community school model provides a unique opportunity to work with students, staff, families, residents, agencies, and local businesses towards creating an accessible community centre and hub for West Courtenay,” said Lake Trail Community School co-ordinator, Anna Rambow. “Building on the success of the Lake Trail Community School Garden and a multitude of programming brought forward over the years by community volunteers and LTCES staff, we are off to an exciting start.”

Upcoming community program offerings include a workshop on nutrition for the family, watershed presentations and guided tours, youth mental health support workshops, a Nia fitness class (a blend of yoga, martial arts, and dance) and an artist presentation. An even more robust program will be offered in the new year. With an aim to keep the community school accessible, many LTCES programs are free or by donation and bursaries are available for registered programs.

Those interested in learning more about the community school model are invited to attend LTCES’s free community supper and annual general meeting taking place at Lake Trail Community Middle School on Friday, Nov. 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m. In addition to a delicious pasta meal and dessert, a short AGM will highlight the year’s accomplishments. Members can review the official financial report and provide input into the new direction of the community school.
