Maternity Leaves

We are thankful to God for healthy pregnancies. Mrs. Chifan and Mrs. Hussey from our Port Coquitlam Campus, and Mrs. Paul from our Pitt Meadows campus all have due dates in the near future. Maternity leave teachers have been hired to teach their classes the remainder of the year.
In Grade 3B, Mr. Brodan Thiel will join the class on April 24.
In Grade 1B, Ms. Katie Liu will join our staff on May 8.
At the Pitt Meadows campus, Mr. Neal De Geus joined our high school staff teaching math, yearbook, career education, and Christian Studies.
We pray God’ s blessings on Mrs. Chifan, Mrs. Hussey and Mrs. Paul as they take on the role of motherhood and are joy-filled with the provision of faithful, qualified Christian teachers to continue teaching the students in their care.
