Canada Study Tour
During September and early October, five keen travellers participated in the CEN Study Tour to Canada. The tour was a roaring success and included a wonderful balance of networking and learning with a bit of bonus sight-seeing thrown in. The tour started in Toronto with a look at some local Christian schools with Justin Cook from Edvance who took us on to Ottawa to participate in the Christian Schools Canada leadership conference. It was then on to Calgary to spend time with Gayle Monsma and Jeremy Horlings from the Prairie Centre for Christian Education (we even got to see snow!). We then made our way to Vancouver to attend a Christian schools teachers’ conference, visit some schools, and meet with staff from the Society of Christian Schools in British Columbia.
Each of the participants felt that the trip was most worthwhile and particularly enjoyed meeting up with leaders in schools that were not that different to their own contexts. We share a great similarity with Canadian schools both theologically and philosophically. We look forward to growing this relationship further.
If you are interested in attending the next Canadian Study Tour which will take place in September 2020, please register your interest with Melinda Storm.
