Fall 2018 Registration

The Chilliwack School District has moved to a centralized, electronic registration system. Our schools no longer accept paper registration forms. This online process provides parents and guardians an option to register their child at any time, even over the summer break. This includes registration for K - 12, French Immersion and out of catchment requests. You will be required to:

1.      Provide a valid email address
2.      Upload a copy of the child’s birth certificate
3.      Upload proof of residency

Outdoor Place Based Learning Programs

Outdoor place based learning is a key focus and teaching philosophy in our school. Place-based education promotes learning that is local and considers the unique history, environment and culture of Cultus Lake. It recognizes and uses students’ own “place” or immediate schoolyard, neighbourhood, town or community.

Outdoor  and community locations in the local communities of Cultus Lake, Soowhalie and Columbia Valley are used to  provide students with a “hands-on, first hand experience” in learning their curriculum. For more information on our outdoor programs check out the following pages on our website

  1. Nature Kindergarten Program (Information)
  2. Outdoor Place Based Learning Grades 1 - 6
