CASTING VISION FOR ANOTHER 40 YEARS
The KCS Building Committee was formed in Fall 2018, and were tasked to look at the expansion of our current Benvoulin Campus. While it is not possible to be a Preschool to Grade 12 school on one site without land acquisition, it is possible to increase our envelope to allow us to best serve approximately 80 students per grade very well from upper elementary to Grade 12 on our Benvoulin Campus. Our recent growth has presented the need for a second gym, additional classroom space, additional fine arts space, and additional applied skills space.
On Saturday, May 11th, Kelowna Christian School invites you to join us for a night that celebrates our 40-year story and launches a plan for our future that aligns with our mission and vision. To celebrate and share, we invite you to join us for an evening of inspiring fellowship, delicious food and exceptional entertainment at the Okanagan Golf Club from Shawn Farquhar, a world-renowned entertainer. Shawn sells out large venues around the world and has appeared on both Ellen and Penn & Teller's shows. Click the videos below to watch his impressive performances.

We have seen rapid growth and recognize it as an opportunity to further our mission and vision as a school community. We want to be able to serve all faith-based families that desire Christian education, and a growing school gives us new opportunities to ensure that every student can find belonging. Most importantly, a growing school allows us to fulfill our mission and grow more disciples.
As we celebrate 40 years of providing excellent transformative education, we eagerly look forward to another 40 years of growth and service in partnership with God.
This evening of celebration will also include a delicious buffet dinner, stories of our past and launch our preliminary plans for a future building! Starting with our 2019 Annual Giving Campaign, we will follow it with a feasibility study on how we will raise funds to ensure we build stewardly. Our 2019 Annual Giving Campaign will focus on strengthening and increasing our applied skills programming from Kindergarten to Grade 12 for 2019-2020. In particular, Kelowna Christian School would like to start two woodwork classes - Woodwork 10 and Woodwork 11/12. We would also like to enhance our applied design and skills technology equipment in our elementary and middle schools.
Our 2019 Annual Campaign will seek to raise $80,000 to add the resources necessary to begin a high school shop program, and also grow our robotics and technology programs in both our middle and elementary schools.
