About

Mission Statement

Lakeside Christian School exists to provide students with a Christ-centered education in academics, social, physical, and spiritual development that will equip them to influence society for the glory of God.

 

School History

The Christian school movement began in Killarney in 1981.  Lakeside Christian School has been a part of the Killarney community since 1988 and has been at its present location since the fall of 1995 after it amalgamated with Killarney Christian Academy.  In 2001, a classroom was added to the west side of the school.  In the fall of 2016, a large addition was opened to the north of the original building that included classrooms, a multipurpose room, a large office space, student lockers, and a new main entrance.

 
Biblical Worldview

At LCS, the Manitoba curriculum is taught with biblical integration into all courses. We are unashamedly Christian. We believe and affirm that the Bible is the infallible Word of God; there is one God, eternally existent in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit); the deity of Jesus Christ includes his virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, resurrection, ascension to the Father, and his personal return; people’s need for redemption through Jesus Christ; and the present ministry of the Holy Spirit in the world. At LCS, we communicate this Christian worldview in all that we do in and outside of the classrooms. For this reason, it is important that parents are aware of the particular doctrinal perspective reflected at LCS.

Some of the experiences offered which bring the Christian faith into the lives of students of LCS are the following:

 

  • Biblical Christian worldview integration into all courses

  • Daily Grade K-12 assembly that includes Bible reading, Scripture memorization, discussions, and school-wide prayer

  • In-class prayer time with students and teachers

  • Monthly Chapels that allow our students to lead worship and participate in Christ-centered performances that are open for our school families and community

  • Bible classes for each grade, K-12

  • Community involvement opportunities including volunteering at the local personal care home, local food bank drive, and community events. These hands-on service opportunities bring Christ’s teachings into practice.

  • Christmas concert and musical celebrating our Savior’s birth.

  • Mission experiences in our community and area, and abroad.  LCS has partnered with a mission organization to help build a Christian school in San Bartolo, Guatemala.

  • Grade 9-12 Bible courses [School Initiated Courses (SICs)]

  • High school Music Worship and Drama Worship courses

  • On most school days, the staff comes together in prayer to support our school family.

 
Community Outreach

Each student at LCS is given an opportunity to give back to our community and our world.  We believe in teaching the importance of looking outside our school community to others for the benefit of all. At LCS, students are encouraged to use the gifts they are given to share with others.

  • Bimonthly visits to our local personal care home.

  • Penny-A-Page Program in support of Classrooms for Africa.

  • High school opportunity to be a part of missions to Guatemala.

  • Giving items to the local food bank.

  • Prayer time in class.

  • Volunteering at local community events.

  • Participating in monthly Chapels

  • Individual class outreach projects like Samaritan’s Purse Shoeboxes.

 
Standardized Education

LCS teaches the Manitoba curriculum, and the Manitoba Department of Education and Training certifies our teachers.

Currently, we offer Kindergarten to Grade 12.

Our Staff

Our staff is comprised of professionally qualified teachers and a support team who are committed to putting Christ first and growing God’s kingdom.

Governance

Lakeside Christian School (LCS) was incorporated on June 6, 1988.  LCS is a non-profit charitable organization. Our elected, volunteer board of LCS members meets monthly and prepares annual plans, budgets, and policies that govern LCS. The board oversees the educational programs, staffing, and the day-to-day activities of the school.

There are two annual general meetings for society members and parents.
