  • About

    Century is the story of Shawnigan Lake School, an independent boarding school on Vancouver Island. Founded in 1916 by C. W. Lonsdale, Shawnigan has become Canada’s Boarding School. This book tracks the history of the School from its humble beginnings, through a century of challenges and triumphs, to its present position as the country’s foremost coeducational boarding high school.

    In Century, Jay Connolly provides the narrative backbone of Shawnigan’s history but leaves much of the storytelling in the hands of the students, teachers, and leaders who have lived and shaped Shawnigan Lake School. “Adolescence—or the recollection of adolescence,” he writes in the preface, “provides a particularly rich speaking moment because it often combines raw emotional experience with revelations of body, mind, and spirit. In the best of these interviews, the confluence of these factors leads to epiphany.” Century gives us an inside view of a remarkable Canadian school.
Shawnigan Lake School is an independent boarding school for Grades 8-12 on Canada's West Coast. Our modern, diverse and innovative programming helps shape the next generation of global leaders.
