Located in Qualicum on central Vancouver Island, School District 69 is a role model for sustainability. The district commits to environmental sustainability through energy and water-saving programs, fuel choices and fuel efficiencies, recycling, and other measures that contribute to reducing the area’s carbon footprint. In the spring of 2016, Hakai installed a renewable energy system at the off-grid False Bay School on Lasqueti Island. Other schools in the district with solar arrays include Oceanside Elementary, Kwalikum Secondary School, Nanoose Bay Elementary and Springwood Elementary.
