Volleyball Provincials Bronze!

We are so proud of our Senior Girls Volleyball team as they finished 3rd at the Provincial Championships. It was such a privilege to watch them play in the new NCS gym and to welcome teams from all over the province.

Kaitlyn VanderKooi was selected as a first team all-star and Asa Liu was selected as a second team all-star.

A HUGE thank-you to Mrs. Quist for taking the lead in organizing a great tournament and to the many, many volunteers who helped to make it a huge success!





Sam Naylor (Kindergarten) has been diagnosed with medullablastoma for a second time, which is a malignant brain tumor (cancer). This is difficult news for the Sam and his family and they are now exploring treatment options.  Chemo is not an option as the effects of the chemo last time were very hard on Sam.  They will need to go to Seattle for appointments and possible treatment.  Please pray for the Naylor family (John and Marie, Abigail, Benjamin, Bethany and Jasmin) and for complete healing for Sam.
If you feel led, we will be accepting donations in the office for the family as the cost of fighting cancer is high.  Donations, meals, cards or anything else you may want to bless the family with can be brought to the office.


Employment Opportunity

We are currently looking for Early Childhood Education (ECE) teachers and assistants to join our team and be on our on-call list.

Please submit a resume, statement of faith and references to Terri VanEk-Veenstra

About the Author:

James is excited to be joining the Nanaimo Christian School community for the 2013-14 school year and seeing the story of God’s faithfulness continuing to unfold. Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, James completed his Bachelor of Education through the King’s University College and the University of Alberta, and continues to support the Edmonton Oilers hockey team. After two years teaching in the middle school at Taber Christian School, James and his family moved to Victoria, BC in 2001 to join the staff at Pacific Christian School as the Special Education Coordinator. In 2006, James accepted a Vice-Principal position at Trinity Christian School in Calgary, AB and in 2012, he and his family moved to the Dominican Republic, to teach, lead and serve as the Middle School Principal of Santiago Christian School. Having recently completed a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership through the University of Calgary, James is eager to continue the journey of academic excellence at NCS through strengthening the current programs within a 21st century context. James brings a passion for Christian Education to NCS, along with a love for learning and a desire to use excellence in education as a tool to strengthen relationships with Jesus. When James is not fulfilling his calling at NCS, he can be found spending time with his family (Michelle, Ben and Matthew) and two dogs, exploring a beach with a crab trap in one hand and fishing rod in the other.
