School children will retain in their long-term memory who their teachers were as people. At Vernon Christian School their memories will also include their teachers’ prayers, support and encouragement for them.

Vernon Christian School is hosting an evening showcase to highlight the staff, programs and the overall value of an education at their school. The school has a 35-year history of teaching the British Columbia curriculum from a Christian perspective, challenging students academically, supporting parents’ desires to plant and nurture God’s word in the hearts and minds of their children and creating opportunities for our young people to develop high standards for personal accountability.

“We’d really love for our students to experience a great response to the showcase evening — the students’ smiles alone are enough to make it worthwhile,” said Corinne Remple, communications and marketing coordinator for VCS. “A number of them are preparing special presentations and it would really be a great source of encouragement for them to be able to share their work.”

The VCS showcase has been designed for those who want to meet the teachers, get into the classrooms, have a good look around and have specific questions answered. On the night of the showcase, both campuses will feature displays, refreshments made by a local chef, and as well the staff, students and board will be on hand to meet and greet.

“And a special invite for those who have long completed ‘active parenting’ yet value Christian education as an option for today’s families,” said Remple. “These special members of our community are being encouraged to take the time to attend, as our students and staff are looking forward to meeting and showing them what makes VCS such a great place and an essential part of the North Okanagan.”

If you have been wondering why you should choose VCS for your children, plan on attending the VCS Showcase on Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information you can go the website at www.vcs.ca or call 250-545-7345.
