Leading young people in the pursuit of personal excellence is the highest of callings.
In 1916, in the middle of a secluded rainforest on Vancouver Island, C.W. Lonsdale answered that call. Even in its most humble beginnings, Mr. Lonsdale envisioned a school that would develop young people of character through the development of the complete person.
100 years later, our founder's vision endures.
The Centennial is more than just a celebration of the past. It is also a defining moment in determining how Shawnigan will move forward. As the School celebrates its 100th birthday, we are committed to developing the skills students need to meet and exceed the challenges of the 21st century.
Now is the time when our community can secure Mr. Lonsdale's vision for the next 100 years and beyond. The Shawnigan Centennial is an invitation for you to become part of that legacy.
