A Message to Parents from the Principal
Welcome to Woodstock Christian School, Woodstock. This handbook is meant to provide you with a variety of information pertaining to our school community. Whether you are new to the community, or whether you are already a member of our school, we hope that you will find what you are looking for, as you read through the pages of this publication. Please consider it as one of the ways that you can obtain information about Woodstock Christian School. Other ways would be to talk to people already connected to WCS, and one of the best ways to find out more about our school would be to come by and visit us! We would be happy to show you around, sit down and talk with you, and answer any questions you may have.
This year at WCS, our school-wide theme is “God is Greater He is over all, through all, and in all,” based on From Ephesians 4:6.
For over 56 years, our school has served as an educational institution in Woodstock and community. Within the walls of the school and out in the community, there are many, many stories of God's faithfulness throughout the years. WCS is a part of God's wonderful story! As we begin a new school year, 2016-2017, we trust that in "FAITH. LEARNING. COMMUNITY", God will continue to work out His plans for us! In all our learning and relationships, we will uncover God's mysteries and love for His creation - such wonder! We will once again, as His image bearers, be entrusted with the mandate to tell the world about His amazing LOVE. Students, teachers, and supporting community will know this LOVE and will be blessed to live each day in this assurance. My prayer is that we will continue to respond by living a life of praise and service to our God in the realm of education.
Our program of study is conscious of the guidelines and standards set by the Ontario Ministry of Education. However, the program is distinct from the provincial guidelines in its orientation and outlook. Emphasis is placed on teaching Christianly, providing students with the ideas and skills necessary to help them learn to discern how to best serve their Saviour with integrity and joy.
Woodstock Christian School has a dedicated and professional staff who work together as a team. The teachers are qualified in the field of education, and they are committed to their work, and to the Lord! The staff strives to provide a rigorous, Christ-centered education, which falls in line with the teachings of both church and home. Together, we want to see children grow academically, socially, and spiritually. Please come by to meet us at WCS; you are always welcome!
Mrs. Carol Verbeek, Principal
