Summer Learning Programs


The Key Learning Centre is making it’s last call for registration for their Summer Learning Program for students entering Grades 1 – 9 in September 2018. We are very close to adding one more class to enjoy all the fun learning activities, so would like to invite you to put your name on a waiting list in the event there is enough interest to run another class.


This year, camps will run from July 3, 2018 to July 13, 2018 (2 weeks). Sessions will run from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. Summer Learning Camps are free; however, there is a $60 fee per child to help cover the cost of resources, consumables and snacks.

*Students will be required to bring a bag lunch each day. A morning snack will be provided.

*The camps that we are offering are:

  • All Primary and Intermediate Programs will be Theme Based Learning.  The Theme Based Learning Projects will include Language Arts, Physical Education, Coding, Social Studies, Science, Arts, Math, and Technology.
  • All Middle School Programs will be Theme Based Learning with an emphasis on Technology & Coding.  Other subjects such as Language Arts, Physical Education, Coding, Social Studies, Science, Arts, and Math may be included.

Lastly, don’t hesitate to call 250-261-5660 or email info@keylearning.ca with any questions.

Friday, June 15th – Hot Dogs and 90s Day

The Fun Day has moved to Monday; however, we will still have a hot dog lunch tomorrow, Friday, June 15th. Students need to bring snacks as a hot dog is not enough for lunch. Extra hot dogs will be on sale for $1. The canteen will also have a few smaller items for sale.

90s Day is still a go for Friday, June 15th. This is the last chance for you to earn points for your colour team. Remember, some of the teams are only 7 points apart!

Grade 6 field trip is also postponed until Monday.

ALS Walk & Coin Drive Challenge

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a motor neuron disease that gradually paralyzes a person until they are unable to control their muscles. You are probably already familiar with the Ice Bucket Challenge. Charlie Lake School has challenged SD 60 schools to raise more funds than they do.

We are doing a coin drive to raise money for ALS. You can donate any amount by coin, cash or cheque. As well you can donate online with a credit card.

Top class by total and top class by weight will get to dump a bucket of ice cold water on one of the admin or other staff members.

We will do a walk and ice water dumping later in June.
