What better way to enjoy the Family Day weekend than at Deer Lake School’s Lunar New Year Multicultural Festival? 

The Lunar New Year is a popular holiday in our city for family celebrations. And on the Family Day weekend, it becomes the perfect opportunity for DLS to honour the rich multicultural diversity of our school family. This multicultural celebration will offer delicious food booths from various countries, live multicultural music, craft activities, carnival games, face painting and so much more! Admission is free, but various vendors will sell their foods, crafts, games and activities. This festival is a great event for the entire family - and please bring a friend. 

This event is hosted by Deer Lake School’s PAC (parent advisory council). 


Admission tickets are free, but you will need to reserve your admission, as well as purchase tickets/tokens used to make purchases in the festival for various foods, crafts and activities. Ticket reservations and ticket/token can be purchased below.


All profits from this event will go to the DLS PAC and the school ARTS program fundraiser.

Deer Lake School is excited to announce its second annual Science Fair on Tues. Feb. 6th. From 10 am-3:30 pm, students will present their projects in the gym and meet with the judges. Classes will also move through the gym by grade to view the projects. Then from 3:30-5 pm, the fair will be open to the larger DLS community of parents, family, and friends. Students will be recognized for their efforts and accomplishments with prizes and public recognition, which often encourage students to deepen their scientific inquiries. We extend a huge thank you to our event sponsors, who help make this event possible.





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.
