Classes are back at Rimbey Christian School.

This year the school welcomes new teacher, Trent Coleman.

Coleman, who is from Sarnia, Ontario, is happy to be living and working in Alberta, though he said he is somewhat surprised to see snow here in September.

Previously Coleman taught English in South Korea. He has had three teaching stints in Korea, returning with his wife Seol-Hwa, whom he met there, and their 10-year-old son Joel.

“We moved to Rimbey from Korea and we really like it here,” he said. “It’s very nice and peaceful.”

Coleman is replacing Daphne Klopstra as the school’s Grade 8/9 English teacher.

Principal Edith Dening said the student population of 83 which includes Fingerprints playschool is about the same as last year.

“We have families moving out, families moving in. It (the population) stays pretty much the same.”

Upcoming school activities include a grandparents’ day on Oct. 9. During the day grandparents or other special persons are invited to the school to share lunch with the students.

“We have a big picnic at the school,” said Dening. “It’s a fun day.”

She said the fall fundraising drive for the school kicks off on that day also.

The Rimbey Christian School employs Alberta Certified Teachers and follows the Alberta approved curriculum.

The Fingerprints Playschool, which is a division of Rimbey Christian School, offers play-based learning while instilling a sense of self-confidence and individuality.

Children aged three to five are accepted.
