SCSBC Leadership Conference
One hundred and sixty people with a strong commitment to Christian education came together at Surrey Christian School on November 2, 2013, for our 14th annual leadership conference. Administrators, coordinators, board and committee members, and others who are passionate about the future of their school invested this day for the purpose of strengthening their leadership roles.
Decisions that Make a Difference was the theme of the conference. The plenary emphasized the concept that “your school is what is it because of what was decided in the past” and was filled with examples of critical decisions that are having long term ramifications; right decisions, wrong decisions, even a lack of decisions all have an impact on an organizations’s future.
To watch some highlights from the plenary including two pre-recorded clips with Dr. Harro van Brumelen, SCSBC’s first staff member, go to the SCSBC vimeo channel. The plenary video url is http://vimeo.com/79240607.
Duncan Christian School’s New Logo
The DCS school logo was a project that began last spring and culminated in board approval during the summer. The logo was designed by a local graphic artist, Evelyn Koops. The new logo depicts the beauty of the Cowichan Valley and reminds us of Christ’s Lordship over it all. In the cross we see the enduring foundation of DCS and are mindful of God’s faithfulness to this school community over the last five decades. The imperfect nature of the circle that surrounds the logo speaks to us all as being a work in progress in Christ. The DCS previous logo of the cross, dove and sun, was designed in 1979/80 by then Grade 7 student Kim Gerbrandt. Her logo represented the school for over thirty years.
