Welcome to Woodstock Christian School!
This handbook is meant to provide you with information related to our school community, our programs, and procedures at school. Whether you are new to the community or whether you are already a member of WCS, we hope that you will find what you are looking for as you read through the pages of this document. This handbook is one of the ways you can obtain information about Woodstock Christian School. Alternately, you could talk to people already connected to WCS, check out our website at www.woodstockchristian.ca, or come by, visit us, and take the tour! We would be happy to show you around, discuss our program and worldview with you, and answer any questions you may have.
Our program of study is aligned with the guidelines and standards set by the Ontario Ministry of Education. However, the program is distinct from other schools in its orientation and perspective. As a member school of EDVANCE (formerly, the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools), emphasis is placed on teaching with a Christian worldview and from a Biblical perspective - providing students with the knowledge, ideas and skills necessary to help them learn to discern how to best serve God and others with integrity, wisdom, and joy.
Woodstock Christian School has a team of dedicated and professional staff. Teachers are qualified in the field of education, committed to their work and to the Lord. Staff strive to provide a rigorous, Christ-centered education in a caring environment, partnering with home and church in teachings and values. Together, we want to see your children learn; set goals, persevere, achieve, and grow academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
This year at WCS, our school-wide theme is "Overflowing with Thankfulness" based on Colossians 2:6-7 (NIV) which instructs and reminds us: "so then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness". We will explore the Bible to better understand how to be in relationship with God in all the places and ways we walk, and how to show His love to those we meet. This year we celebrate the 60 years WCS has served as a Christian educational institution in Woodstock and the surrounding community.
As we begin a new school year, 2019-2020, we trust that in "FAITH. LEARNING. COMMUNITY", God will continue to work out His plans for us. In all our learning and relationships, we uncover God's wonders and His love for creation. This year again, as His image bearers, we are entrusted with the command to tell the world about His amazing love. Students, teachers, and supporting community know this love and are blessed to live each day in this assurance. My prayer is that we continue to respond by living a life of praise and service to God in the area of education.
Please come by to meet us at WCS; take a tour, experience WCS. You are welcome here!
Mrs. Carol Verbeek, Principal
