    A Year of Caring for Stories

    My first year of writing news stories for the OACS News Service is finished and I’m mindful of a piece I published in October, about Marilyn Chandler McEntyre’s keynote address at the 2013 Edifide Convention. Those who filled the seats of Redeemer University’s crowded auditorium may recall McEntyre reflecting on what it means for us to be “stewards of stories” and, by extension, “custodians of something that needs to be cared for”. In a way, my job at the OACS has allowed me to embrace that invitation. The bulk of my work this year was about the act of “stewarding” or “caring for” stories—and doing that in community.

    Lessons Learned through Sport

    This year, students in OACS schools took part in a wide range of athletic activities. Facebook pages abounded with pictures from badminton tournaments, volleyball practices, and basket ball games. Photos from the many track and field events that took place this spring show students leaping over triple jump pits, running around outdoor tracks, and hurtling over high jump bars. These are exciting moments to celebrate!

    Planting Seeds, Watching them Grow

    A total of 225 students are registered to attend Cambridge Christian School (CCS) this fall. Enrollment wise, that’s a “bit of a boom” says Scott Beda, Principal.

    Beda is thankful for the increase in enrollment and looks forward to integrating the new families into CCS’s tight nit community. “There’s a lot of neat stuff going on,” he notes.
