School marks anniversary

The Penticton Christian School is celebrating its 25th anniversary on May 25

The Penticton Christian School is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. In 1988, PCS had its humble beginnings in Sunday school rooms at the First Baptist Church and mobile homes on Carmi Avenue.

After being relocated to Roy Avenue and South Main Street, PCS found its permanent home in 2007 in a beautiful two-storey structure on Edmonton Avenue. Throughout those years, parents have had the choice of providing their children with quality Christian education while still following the B.C. curriculum at all grade levels.

We are grateful to some of the early founders and visionaries: John Antonides, Frank Conci, Dave Wright and the first head teacher, Jan Gray. A special tribute will be paid to Betty May Dyck, the first principal and teacher, who had the vision and the determination to see the school grow and flourish. She died too soon in March 1992.

We would like to invite anyone who has been involved with the school to join us in this celebration in the ballroom of the Penticton Lakeside Resort at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 25. Tickets are $50 each and are available at the front desk of PCS or by calling Donna Ashdown at 250-493-4269.
