Welcome to Lakeside School!
More than just a school, we are a community of life-long learners bringing the best of ourselves into the world.
“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.”
We offer the following territorial acknowledgement as an intentional act for acknowledging the injustices committed to Indigenous peoples in this land now called Canada and for committing ourselves individually and collectively as a school to the path of Truth and Reconciliation. As settlers, we wish to engage respectfully and meaningfully with the local Indigenous communities, as well as understand the implications of being uninvited guests on occupied territory. We apologise for any mistakes or omissions we may inadvertently make, as we recognize that we are on a learning journey.
Our school stands on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of nsyilxcən speaking people, the Syilx Okanagan people. The Syilx Okanagan territory has 8 regions that help to differentiate the various village sites: senq’aʔitkʷ - Southern Okanagan, suknaqinx - Northern Okanagan, senpʕʷilx - San Poil, senx̌̓ʷyaʔłpitkʷ - Colville/Kettle, sʔaltik̓wet - Arrow Lakes, senʕickstx - Slocan, smelqmix - Similkameen/Methow.
Those First Nations’ immemorial presence in this sacred land we honour today.
We acknowledge with gratitude and respect all the ancestors of this land in which
we are very fortunate to live, work, and learn.
