What IS a Community School?

Second Street is one of eight Community Schools in Burnaby.  We are still a regular public school, however, being a community school, we have a special belief in, and emphasis on, the value of community involvement.  It is an accessible place where people can volunteer, find support, ideas and new friends.  Community schools offer a variety of programs (after school programs, adult education classes, etc.) and services (help with subsidies, Parks & Recreation, etc.) to meet the needs of the community, from infants to seniors.

Each community school also has a Community School Coordinator who works with the community to develop and support many of the special offerings and programs within the community school.

Please drop by the Community Office to find out more about our school and community, about how we can help you, or how you can get involved!
