The Shawnigan E-Club's newest initiative aims at sharing the magic of the forest with preschoolers.
The project is a cross-curricular effort among the E-Club and an assortment of academic and fine arts programs to create a Fairy Forest Trail for local children to enjoy.
The trail starts at the Montessori Preschool on the edge of the School, and meanders a short distance through the rainforest that Shawnigan is built on. It includes six small fairy villages, each linked to a particular feature of the forest environment with a box containing interpretive maps at the trailhead.
The project has now been entered into the 10th annual BC Green Games – a Science World-sponsored competition that promotes local environmental education across the Province.
Shawnigan Lake School is a co-educational boarding school on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. The school is home to nationally-ranked academics, arts and athletics, with 100 per cent of graduates accepted to university.
