“

Boarding at Shawnigan is special because your friendships are developed where you reside. One of the greatest pieces of the Shawnigan education is that you learn how to be a good roommate. The students here learn the art of a good compromise and that treating others with dignity and respect will improve the quality of your life. Eric Venables

Assistant House Director, Copeman’s
