International Program

Welcome

The Vernon Christian School International Program creates opportunities for friendships and mission-based activities around the world. Students and families will benefit from the infusion of new perspectives and experiences from different cultures, and develop an awareness of the interconnected nature of our world and our Christian faith.

Christine Seminutin, our coordinator, graduated with honours from Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, with a BA and BEd in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language). Christine developed an ESL program at Rift Valley Academy in Kenya, East Africa, completed a Masters in Arts (Theology) at Regent College, Vancouver BC. She enjoyed teaching ESL at various schools in 

the Vancouver area, including:  Canadian as a Second Language Institute (CSLI), an award winning school and a member of the LCI Education Network; and Columbia College, a member of the Federation of Independent Schools Association from 1998 – 2015

“I love travelling and getting to know new people, their languages and cultures.  In fact, I have had the good fortune, or blessing, of being able to travel to approximately 25 different countries thus far! Currently; however, I am content and delighted to be the International Program Coordinator at Vernon Christian School in the beautiful Okanagan region of BC.  

My passion is using language teaching to connect people to each other and to inspire them to reach their goals and dreams for success, whatever that looks like!  In the summer, I love to go hiking and then to cool off by taking a swim in one of the beautiful, clean lakes surrounding our beautiful city, and in the winter I love to go snowboarding at our local Silver Star Mountain Resort.  I also love to sing, bake, read good books and watch movies.”  –  Christine Seminutin
