Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools has launched a new facility booking program.  With the new program you will be able to set up and manage your account, do online bookings and make payments.  The new software, powered by PerfectMind, streamlines services and provides intuitive and user-friendly online facility bookings.  We appreciate your patience while we transition to the new and improved booking site.  Patrons can expect some downtime during this process.  If you have any questions or concerns, or issues with your online login, please contact us at or call 250-741-5241 or 250-741-5244.

*Important notice for renters regarding emergency cancellations*
A reminder to all rental partners that the School District reserves the right to cancel individual rental incidences waiving the notice period, for health and safety risks.  In these instances the renter will not be charged due to emergency cancellation by the Board.  Power outages, inclement weather, emergent maintenance, capital loss events, and school closures are some of the reasons the district has had to cancel permits in the past. The district may also cancel rentals when given direction from the health authority. Thank you for your understanding.
