IMMANUEL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL OPENING
(Information from Principal Keith Cameron) – “Immanuel Christian School’s theme this year is “Called to love one another” and we will explore what that means in a practical way throughout our classes, chapels and co-curricular activities. We will also run the Protectors Freedom from Bullying character building program during term 1. We have an enrolment of 87 students (86 last year). This has meant an additional 40% position for our Kindergarten classes (which are now single grade, one JK and one SK class). Staff remains constant, with Mr Evert TenBruggencate continuing as Vice Principal. We have modified our daily schedule to allow a homeroom pause for reflection at the end of our days, hopefully eliminating the ‘mad rush’ for the bus which proved to be detrimental for remembering homework and the like!”

AUTHORS IN PT. STANLEY
(From Elgin County Library) – “To celebrate Culture Days, Elgin County Library has invited Murdoch Mysteries author Maureen Jennings to discuss how she came to create Murdoch Mysteries and Bomb Girls at Pt. Stanley Arena on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. The Murdoch Mysteries TV series is based on Jennings’ popular mystery novels following the life of a young detective in 1890s Toronto who uses radical forensic techniques, like fingerprinting and trace evidence, to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders. Bomb Girls is a new series conceived by Jennings that airs on Global TV about women who work in a munitions factory during World War II. Jennings will be joined by Port Burwell mystery author Janet Bolin, whose first novel, Dire Threads, was nominated for an Agatha Award and Bloody Words Award. Ms. Bolin will begin the evening by discussing techniques for setting up the perfect mystery. The evening is being presented with a Victorian theme in tribute to the setting of Murdoch Mysteries and guests have the option to dress in Victorian attire.”
