Welcome to Lillian Berg Public School
Lillian Berg is a small community school located in beautiful Vermilion Bay on the shores of Eagle Lake. We offer Kindergarten to Grade 8 programming.
Lillian Berg School’s playground is set in a wooded area where students can take advantage of their natural surroundings and take their learning outdoors. We have two Forest Classrooms: one located on the school property sponsored by Weyerhaeuser and another one located a short hike from the school sponsored by Domtar. These Forest Classrooms allow our students to have a unique opportunity to explore the environment through inquiry based learning to gain a richer and deeper understanding of how we connect with nature. Technology plays an important role at Lillian Berg School and is used as a learning tool in our classrooms. Students are equipped with laptops, iPads and netbooks to prepare them for success in a dynamic, technology intensive 21st century.
Our teachers believe in educating the “whole child” and are committed to using authentic and hands on learning opportunities as well as our natural outdoor environment to help promote problem solving, curiosity and a love of learning.
Community is important at Lillian Berg School. We host a variety of community events such as Thanksgiving and Christmas community dinners, an evening Christmas concert , a community Veteran’s Breakfast-Remembrance Day Ceremony at the cenotaph and a community talent show. Parents volunteer to ensure our students have a hot lunch program offered twice a week and every student has daily access to a free and healthy breakfast which includes cheese, fruit, veggies, cereal, toast or muffins.
We are a tight-knit group here at Lillian Berg and look forward to welcoming new families!

Nutrition on Weekends Program
LBS Forest School
At the Lillian Berg Forest and Nature School, children do a lot of the activities they might do in a traditional education environment, but they do them all outdoors. The open-ended play and learning happens outside, where kids can learn by counting mushrooms, observing plants, or lifting up rocks just to see what’s living underneath them.
Students are encouraged, through interaction with nature, to learn and develop socially; to be physically active and emotionally fit; to develop self-confidence; to learn respect for their neighbourhoods and environments; and to enjoy nature in safe and age-appropriate ways.
Children allowed to explore freely, in ever-changing natural environments, are going to have to get creative with play and use their problem-solving skills to deal with weather, natural barriers, and other factors of the outdoors.
