Indeed, as an integral member of a vibrant, 24/7 community, you'll find opportunities to inspire — and to be inspired — around the clock. More than 60 staff members live on our 150-hectare campus, and they and their families find a richly rewarding, inclusive environment. With so many positive interactions taking place every day, it's no wonder why so many who begin a career at Shawnigan finish it here as well.

Shawnigan Lake School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff (and volunteers) to share this commitment.

Academic Excellence
As part of our commitment to Project Future, Shawnigan Lake School’s strategic plan, and our strategic pillar of Academic Excellence, the School introduced The BruceLockhart Fellowship for Academic Excellence. Every year this Fellowship allows Shawnigan to bring an outstanding educator to our campus for one year.
We acknowledge with respect the Coast Salish Peoples on whose traditional lands and waterways we live, learn and play. We are grateful for the opportunity to share in this beautiful region, and we aspire to healthy and respectful relationships with those who have lived on and cared for these lands for millennia.
