A Gem In Our Midst

There are many gems in our community. The Bulkley Valley Christian school is among them.

There are many gems in our community.  The Bulkley Valley Christian school is among them.

Last night my family and I enjoyed the brilliant performance of ‘Seven Brides For Seven Brothers’ at the Della Herman theatre, put on by the students, teachers, parents and friends of BVCS.

It wasn’t only the enormous talent, energy, heart and soul of this production that made it amazing, it was the sheer fact that this elaborate production was put on by a school that has a very small school body.

It is simply awe inspiring to see what a very small group of dedicated people can accomplish.

Along with this incredible talent, BVCS is a place where my daughter has experienced first-hand, the values espoused by this school: acceptance, kindness and compassion; universal lessons displayed and taught by Christ.

BVCS is a gem to be treasured.
