Lakeview Elementary is located south of Quesnel a few minutes walk from the western banks of Dragon Lake. Our school hosts 230 students from Kindergarten through to Grade Seven. Our playground weaves its way through tall evergreens whose canopy provides our students with both shade from the elements and a sense of wonderment. Our students enjoy participating in our many extracurricular activities including our organized sports teams, the After School Sports and Arts Initiative (ASSAI), school choir, Lego club, drama club, and our homework club to name a few. Lakeview is more than a school, Lakeview is a community of learners who come together in the pursuit of knowledge. A place where curiosity, agency, risk-taking and collaboration take centre stage. We pride ourselves in our ability to form lasting connections between staff, students, community and caregivers. The power of this connection is evident in that we have many second and third-generation Lakeview students attending. We believe that creating a community of belonging is critical to providing safe learning environments for students.
We focus on creating an inclusive environment in which all students are provided with the support they need to grow to be successful lifelong learners and to become active within their community. Our Parent Advisory Council, parents and caregivers take an active role in supporting this healthy development through their partnership with our staff and through their leadership with our students.
