Athletics at Nanaimo Christian School is building to a whole new level of excitement and participation. The Trail Blazers are not only learning new skills and building character through sports, they are representing NCS in the city of Nanaimo through competitive play and great sportsmanship. We are proud of the accomplishments of all of our athletes and know that God has been glorified on and off the court and field.
There has been a lot of excitement during the 2016-17 school year at NCS. At middle school our volleyball, football and basketball teams had a lot of fun playing the other schools around Nanaimo and the Peewee (grade 6) boys basketball team had an undefeated season. There was also the opportunity for us to participate in the island independent schools one day tournaments which included basketball, floor hockey, volleyball, badminton and other sports.
In the high school we had two provincial opportunities with our swim relay team earning a spot in provincials and a gymnast from our school finished 10th at provincials. Our Senior Girls Volleyball team is continuing to be a force on the court by forcing a wildcard playoff in Surrey to play for a spot at provincials, while they finished third on the island we are excited to see what they will accomplish in 2017-18. We continued with a repeat of 2015-16 with our Senior Boys basketball team finishing 1st in the North Island and narrowly missing provincials by finishing 3rd at the Island Championships.
As we continue to grow, it is our goal to provide opportunities for all students who are interested to be able to play. This means additional teams, coaches, and gym time are needed. Below is a chart of what we are expecting for the 2017-18 school year and the highlighted teams are in need of coaches. Please consider getting involved and leading one of these teams, we can’t pay you but we know that the reward of getting to know each of these athletes will be plenty.
We need coaches!

The Nanaimo Christian School theatre program strives to be one of learning, fun and excellence in the art of theatre. We love theatre and together with our students we work very hard to bring two excellent performances of musicals to the school community every year. Discovering the thrill of the stage, working hard together to produce excellence in each other, and unearthing God-given gifts and talents in our students; these are the things that we are trying to do. We have seen the value in helping our students to see the wonder of what their gifts and alot of hard work can accomplish. So come along on the journey, it may be exciting, sad, thrilling, painful, and funny but it is always interesting.
Theatre productions at Nanaimo Christian School have included such well known titles as:
- 42nd Street
- Beauty & the Beast
- West Side Story
- Fiddler on the Roof
- Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
- Les Miserables
- Anne of green Gables
- Wizard of OZ
- Charlie Brown
- The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe

The Nanaimo Christian School Media arts program strives to be one of learning, fun and excellence using digital and physical mediums. Art classes and exploratories allow students to experience a wide variety of media in creating their “masterpieces.” In addition, opportunities for students in digital photography and dynamic media creation ensure that all students have the possibility of unearthing their God-given gifts and talents.
Over the years, Nanamio Christian School has been deliberate in providing excellent opportunities to develop their gifts of music. Music classes are offered in Kindergarten to grade 5 which expose students to choral and instrumental opportunities.
Students in grade 4 and 5 have the opportunity to participate in a choir which is well known locally for their Christmas performances.
The middle school offers a strong band program based on each student’s individual ability level and provides numerous performance opportunities at school and in the community.
The high school continues to build on the middle school band and students in both middle and high school have the ability to participate in musical theater and the jazz band.
Applied Designs Skills and Technology
At Nanaimo Christian School we offer a wide verity of Trades and Technology programs. From the classics of junior and senior woodwork where you learn the basics of woodwork as a hobby to skills needed to work in the construction and woodwork trades.
In Electronics we explore the basic principles of electricity all the way through programming of digital LED displays and robotics. In the Drafting and Design class students develop a working knowledge of manual and CAD drafting before honing their design skills and creating clothing and cut vinyl stickers using our Graphtec vinyl cutter and our newest addition, a 3D printer.
Power Technology is a junior class where we design and build stick bridges, and smash them to pieces, all with the goal of holding the most weight. We explore the internal working of a small gas engine with the hope of making it run again and finish off by building C02 cars and racing them across the gym. NCS also offers an exploratory program in middle school where students are exposed to all that is offered in the Technology program as well as a few other fun things like metal work and art.
