At Deer Lake School, we believe that God calls us to love and serve others – it’s the foundation of who we are! We are honoured to be part of the Free the Children – We School network founded by Craig and Marc Kielburger. We Schools believe in empowering children to help children, and this philosophy fits perfectly with the core values of DLS! As a We School we have committed to undertaking two projects each year, one in our local community, and one internationally.

We proudly support various charities in our community each year, including Heart & Stroke, Terry Fox, and Covenant House. Each month our students prepare 85 sack lunches for distribution with the Burnaby Taskforce on Homelessness. We believe that partnering with others is a great way to step out and get involved in helping in our community. Two years ago our high school students provided the physical labour necessary to make over a two bedroom townhouse for an amazing family in Port Moody.

This year, in March, our grade 11 and 12 students headed off to serve with LoveDine, a project with the Navajo Nation in Arizona. They assisted with construction, gardening and clothing distribution.
