Schools & Education

Soon after arriving, settlers banded together to open the first Calling Lake school in 1922. Now part of the Northlands School Division, the school offers K-12 education. Adult education has taken various forms in Calling Lake over time. Those efforts include a job corps that ran in the 1970s.

By a Lake of Sparkling Blue, a history of Calling Lake School written by Dora Shwaga and published in 1997, offers many a walk down memory lane for those whose families attended the school in earlier years.

Another valuable resource is the school’s yearbook, Evergreen. Especially the 1966-1967 edition, which includes a significant focus on Calling Lake history.
