Residential Life:

Image of Private Boarding School in BC, Canada- Beyond the classroom, the sports field, and the fine art building, learning continues 24 hours a day as the entire school community shares sit-down, family-style meals, gathers three mornings a week for non-denominational chapel assemblies and, especially, experiences day to day life in their "homes" -- the nine residences of Shawnigan Lake School.

- Here the students learn about life—about interactions with peers, about how to live together harmoniously and the effort that takes, and about how it feels to be part of a bigger community. They absorb the spirit of their House, they support their housemates, and they learn lessons about commitment, selflessness, honesty and giving.

- House Directors use House Meetings to discuss issues that may have surfaced within the School or the House that day. The Residential Life curriculum includes components specifically designed for each grade level. Topics cover a broad spectrum from table manners and sense of occasion, to more controversial issues such as sexual health and substance abuse. We pride ourselves on offering a safe environment for open discussion and questions.
