The school board has finally hired a teacher for the Vavenby Primary School for this year.

Bryan Cederholm grew up in Vavenby and spent his school years in Vavenby Elementary School and the Clearwater Secondary School. This year he will be teaching three children of his former classmates.

Cederholm graduated from Thompson Rivers University in 2014 and worked two term-certain jobs since then, one in Barriere and one in Juniper Ridge. He is excited about teaching at this school and is looking forward to running it on his own.

However, by being the only adult he did say that there is the potential of feeling lonely. He does have the noon hour supervisor to talk with, though.

Cederholm said, “When I got here I went through each room to see what was here and it brought back memories.”

He found a piano in the storage room that he took out to use. He is also planning on using the computer room and setting up another room for a science center.

Cederholm is happy to be back in the warmth of his family home and for getting the home-cooked meals.

Gazebo project makes progress

torchThere has been work done on building a picnic gazebo at Vavenby Community Park. The cement base has been laid and eight posts put around. The cement base had to be dried off and then a sealant added. The sealant stops water from getting in.


The gazebo will be post-and-beam and built in the spring. The cement picnic tables already there will be put added.
