Providence Christian School celebrates a new name and a new school year

Written on September 20th, 2013

The Providence Christian School (PCS) community came together on September 5 for a dessert social to celebrate an exciting name change and the start of a new school year.

 PCS principal Kevin Bouwers believes that the decision to change the school’s name from Dundas Calvin Christian School to Providence Christian School will help clarify the school’s calling and mission.

“We live and move and breathe in God’s providence and we claim that as a Christian school,” says Bouwers. “Our mission is to provide a quality, Christ-centered education; we do so in the knowledge that the Lord is Lord of all. When we develop the gifts of God’s children; we do so clinging to His divine care and direction. When we prepare them for a life of leadership and contribution in His Kingdom; we do so knowing that we rely wholly on his provision for us. This is what defines us as Providence Christian School.”

At the dessert social, the school celebrated the name change with balloons, “Providence Christian School” T-shirts and a cake showcasing the school’s new logo design.

“We shared fellowship and dessert together as we greeted new faces, welcomed back friends and explored the classrooms that are set for the upcoming year,” says Bouwers. “The weather was fantastic as we collectively enjoyed our community of learning for life”.
