Upcoming Events


Deer Lake School is pleased to present the graduating class of 2024! Please come out and celebrate with us on Friday, June 14 at 7 pm for Class Night and Saturday, June 15 at 8 pm for Commencement at the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre in Burnaby. We're so proud of these 24 unique young adults, 92% of whom are heading off directly to colleges and universities this fall, including BCIT, Burman, SFU, Langara, UBC Sauder and the University of San Francisco.


Deer Lake School & The David Suzuki Butterflyway - Climate change, pesticides, and habitat loss have affected the insect population dramatically worldwide.  Studies show a decline of 75% in the last 25 years. Insects are one of the key elements of every food web including our own. 

This year our DLS Green Team is undertaking the goal of planting a garden specifically with the needs of our pollinators in mind. Using native plants and leaving sheltering elements in place, we will be building a pollinator paradise along our fence on Gilpin Street.  Our goal is to inspire 12 additional pollinator gardens in our local Burnaby community through the David Suzuki Butterflyway Project.  Insects often have a short flight range and creating resting and refueling spots within our local urban landscape will allow them to access a greater range of food sources.  Every effort we make to maintain our world's beautiful biodiversity adds up. 


Thank you for your support.  It makes a difference.
