My favourite things to do are watching sports and going on adventures with my wife!
I really love the community that exists at PCS. Everyone is connected to everyone, and it’s a place where you feel so known and supported.
Mrs. Sarah McClure
I am teaching grade one part time this year, and my job share teacher is Kim Taal.
I am blessed with three energetic boys and an amazing and talented husband, Eric (shout out to another PCS grad!). I spend my time doing long distance running, hiking, hanging out at the beach/lake with my family, tending to our chickens and doing laundry.
I love PCS because to me, it defines community. I love that the school invests in their students from preschool to graduation and then continues to invest in them long after through community connections and meaningful, authentic relationships. My husband and I graduated quite a long time ago from PCS and we are still in contact with several of our teachers and alumni. Now here I am, full circle, working in the very classrooms and learning spaces that I spent my childhood. PCS is more than a school to me, it’s a network of hardworking, genuine, Christ-loving, God-fearing, talented people who work together to make it a place worthy of calling a Christian Community.
Ms. Sekel Pollok
I’m teaching Humanities and math at the Secondary School as well as dance and photography electives.
In my free time, I enjoy dancing, taking photos, writing, cooking, hiking, serving at church, and spending time with loved ones.
As a former student at PCS, I experienced faith in action, unity in community, and joy in learning. Now, as a PCS Alumni and new teacher, I am inspired by the opportunity to create this same experience for my own students.
Mrs. Kim Taal
Grade one teacher with Sarah McClure.
In my spare time I love to be anywhere near the ocean. I enjoy spending time camping and hiking with my husband and our 4 daughters. Any of these activities enjoyed even more with a coffee in hand and the company of friends.
My inspiration about PCS stems way back to the 1950’s when my grandparents, along with a handful of other families had a vision for Christian education. I have had the pleasure of experiencing the PCS community as a student, teacher and parent. I am thankful for the vision so many years ago. It has enriched my life and has given me support, friendship, and prayer in times of need. A community that started with a vision and continues to grow and embrace each other is what inspires me.
Mr. Lucas Tuffin
I am an Educational Assistant at the Secondary school at PCS.
I enjoy playing sports and getting out to take photos.
I am inspired by the great community that PCS has.
