November 2013 News and Events
Northside Christian School
Grade 12 students travelled to High River Alberta in September to help residents with cleanup following the June flood. One group of students reinsulated the basement of a residence, another group spent time cleaning up a yard, reseating pavers in a sidewalk, and grading a driveway to provide safe access for the resident’s mobility scooter. As the students discovered, working in the middle of a disaster is a lot different than seeing footage on the news.
Powell River Christian School
The school community gives thanks to God for their successful purchase of one of the surplus district schools in the area. The move to this new location over the summer has resulted in increased visibility in the community, while ownership of a building brings to the school a sense of permanency as well as room for continued growth. PRCS has been able to reinstate their preschool program which they had to close last year due to lack of space. They now have plenty of room to expand as needed in the future.
“We are amazed and thankful to the Lord for this incredible blessing. It is great to see the excitement in the staff, in the parents and in the students! We have experienced amazing support, and continue to see growth in our numbers.” – Board Member
