Lakefield College School is committed to the responsibility of nurturing the spiritual life of its students.
From its earliest days, the Alexander W. Mackenzie Memorial Chapel has been at the heart of school life. Every school day begins in the chapel to acknowledge and celebrate our community spirit. In our chapel services we share prayers, music and festivals and by doing so, affirm the special contributions of each individual student. We believe that by sharing, listening, singing and quietly reflecting in the Chapel we strengthen our community spirit.
Affiliated with the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Toronto, Lakefield acknowledges its Christian heritage while appreciating and understanding the importance of inclusive dialogue. We strive to enable all students to draw upon their individual strengths and belief-systems in a safe and respectful environment. Chapel is intended to empower, liberate and respect each student's dignified identity. Students are encouraged to recognize their power as individual members within a loving and unified community.T
he community regularly engages in discussing contemporary issues and making them relevant to everyday life. Discussions led in Chapel are often enriched and complemented by the addresses of guest speakers, faculty members and "Senior Chapel Talks."
The newly established role of Director of Spiritual Wellness and Diversity will ensure the school continually strives to create an environment of acceptance and understanding in acknowledgement of the school's diverse community.
