boarding school
Shawnigan Lake School is a prestigious Canadian boarding school located on Vancouver Island. It was founded by Englishman, C.W. Lonsdale, and modelled after England's leading private school, Westminister School.

Every student is required to participate in a sport, four times a week, for the whole year. The most popular sports are rugby, field hockey, and rowing. The school spends hundreds of thousands of dollars in order to maintain the sports equipment.

Students at Shawnigan are usually the children of billionaires, including business men, lawyers, doctors, actors, or film makers. They spend their ten-day breaks cruising in the Carribean or skiing in the Hamptons. Students work hard and part hard. Not only do they graduate to Ivy League universities, they throw amazing parties on leave weekends.

Uniform is required at Shawnigan, like it is at any other Canadian prep school. For classroom dress, girls wear polos with either a v-neck sweater, sweater-vest, or cardigan, and a grey or beige skirt (depending on the season) with white or grey knee socks (or black tights in winter). Boys wear the same on top, and they have their choice of grey trousers (winter) or khaki shorts (summer). They are required to wear plain black dress shoes. Every saturday and on formal events, students wear their "number ones", which include a dark blue blazer, white oxford, tie, and a grey kilt and knee socks for girls and grey trousers for boys.
