Community Schools

Building Character Today for Communities of Tomorrow

Oak Lake Community School is one of 25 community schools in the province. “Building Character Today for Communities of Tomorrow” focuses on building good character among students, both in and out of the school, as we partner with families, businesses, and other organizations.

Our school continues to partner with organizations such as West Souris River Conservation District to develop environmental citizenship in our students and community. In addition to weekly character education classes, service learning projects provide an authentic way for students to give back to the local and global community while caring for our environment.

Life Stories and Legacies

We value the wisdom, life experience, and skills that our elders bring to our school and community. Every year we honour them by interviewing them and writing biographies, presenting our finished work at a special tea in the spring. Check out this highlights video.
