Educating and equipping discerning disciples of Jesus Christ for restorative work in His kingdom

The View Blog

Welcome to the new school blog! One of our teachers (Jeff Ludditt, Gr. 5/6) wrote an article in 2018 called “The View from the Cabin”. That lead to a second article, a follow-up from Mr. Nelson called “The View from the Fishbowl”, and two more articles followed by each.

What a great way for the community to see the school through the eyes of those living everyday life in and around it! This blog will feature stories of many of us in the coming months – from teachers to parents to students and possibly even beyond into the wider Cedars community and churches.

If you have a story you would like to submit, please contact Coleen Hein (

Enjoy the blog!
