Every year, our top athletes from Grades 3-8 meet with other Christians schools to compete in our Toronto North District Track and Field. Congratulations to our relay teams and to our individual students for a day of many successes! Your enthusiasm and display of good sportsmanship is always a pleasure to witness as well. https://www.kizoa.com/Movie-Video-Slideshow-Maker/d121895638k7067989o2l1/2017-district 2017 District Continue reading

At the end of May, we held an open house for guests to give their well-wishes to our retiring principal, Mrs. Martha Muntz. Martha has been a part of OCS for 17 years, teaching in both the grade 3/4 and 7/8 classrooms, being our resource teacher, and most recently our principal and COO. She will certainly be missed at our school as she enters this new phase of life. God's blessings to you, Mrs. Muntz, and thank you for your love and dedication to OCS and its community. Have an AWESOME retirement! Continue reading

They had the opportunity to display and share their findings with our first Celebration of Learning evening, where we wowed our parents and friends with each classroom's expedition. Well done, students! Continue reading

In December, we had the opportunity to entertain two separate audiences with our Christmas musical production, yet also bless others with the collection of new and gently used shoes, donated to Soles4Souls Charity. Well done, students! Shown below are Mrs. VanDyk and Ms Gronfors, who along with the rest of our staff worked diligently with our students to make this such a great production. Thank you!

According to Wikipedia, "Aloha in the Hawaiian language means affection, peace, compassion , and mercy. Since the middle of the 19th century, it also has come to be used as an English greeting to say goodbye and hello." On Monday, June 27th, 2016, we had the opportunity to celebrate our grade 8 grads and wish them well as they continue their education in high school. May the affection, peace, compassion and mercy of God rest upon you as you depart from OCS and represent Christ in your new schools! Graduates, you have been a wonderful part of Orangeville Christian School... Continue reading

This year, our chapels have been focusing on the character and qualities of God. It was quite fitting that our grade 3/4 class, also known as our Wise Owls, were the ones to present on wisdom. It was also timely to send off our graduates not only with the reminder of the wisdom we receive from God but also how we are to make wise decisions in all we do. A special commissioning prayer for our grade 8's, which involved all students, staff and parents present, was a beautiful way to end our last chapel of the year. Blessings to... Continue reading

On what was probably the hottest humidex/temperatures of the year so far, the grade 7/8 class joined other schools in Halton Hills for an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament. Relief from the heat was had when the winds picked up, but that made for some challenging frisbee throwing! Well done, students - you represented our school very well in both ability and attitude. Ultimate Frisbee - Kizoa Video Editor - Movie Maker Continue reading
