As a lifelong resident, I have had the privilege to raise my family, live, learn and work within the Sooke School District.
Throughout my career I have led multi-disciplinary teams and developed strategic stakeholder relationships and partnerships to deliver quality, cost-effective programs and services across B.C.. This included K-12 education programs and services that served all schools and districts across B.C. ; including SD62.
As a long-term public servant and volunteer within several local community and sports organizations, I respect and understand the importance of developing and maintaining relationships, partnerships and ensuring equitable, inclusive and fiscally responsible decisions.
Through personal commitment to lifelong learning and development there are many learning and career opportunities that have contributed to my knowledge of local and provincial educational planning, programming and services.
Some of my relevant education and work experiences include:
Bachelor of Education: University of Victoria
*Graduated with Distinction
Women's Varsity Soccer Team
Instructor - Preschool, and Youth Programs: Westshore Parks & Recreation
Parent Advisory Council and Strategic Planning Committee: Glen Lake Elementary
Director, Student Data & Information Services: Ministry of Education
Volunteer: Westshore Rebels Jr. Football Program, Juan de Fuca Minor Soccer, Hockey and Westshore Rotary.
Continued growth, change and demand for new and improved educational programs, services and facilities, is expected at all grade levels & early years (Pre-K).
Building new schools and providing equitable, inclusive, diverse and innovative programs, services and learning spaces requires meaningful, regular and thoughtful collaboration.
I will ensure all voices, ideas, interests and the needs of students, families and staff are reflected in the decision making, and planning processes.
I will utilize my experience, knowledge and established community and provincial partnerships to ensure SD62 continues to meet current and future expectations of students, families, staff and all communities SD62 serves.
" I want to emphasize the importance of electing a strong leader who brings experience and a fresh perspective to the table. Someone to represent the needs and the aspirations of our students and our community. In my eyes, there's one exceptional candidate who perfectly fits the bill - Christine Lervold. She brings a wealth of experience as a trained educator, former public servant and a deeply involved member of our community. What sets Christine apart is her family's long-standing tradition of community service. Her dedication and passion for our schools and students are unparalleled."
"Christine's enthusiasm for creating positive change, combined with her proven skills and ability to build strong relationships and collaborative partnerships, makes her an ideal candidate for the role of School Board Trustee. I am confident she will approach her role as trustee with the same passion, dedication, and integrity she has consistently demonstrated in her professional career and as a leader in our community."
"I heartily endorse Christine Lervold as a candidate for Trustee, SD62. Her background in education as a teacher, policy and governance, gives her the skills and experiences to do the work needed. Christine's energy and deep understanding of the community will be such a benefit, especially for a mid-term election. As a Trustee Christine is the best choice to help our Board continue to not only meet our many challenges but to also remain Provincial leaders in education practice"
"I was thrilled when I found out Christine was running for SD62 School Board Trustee. Her extensive knowledge and experience will be of great value in this role. She comes into this campaign with passion, energy & new exciting ideas which will benefit all families within SD62. Her willingness to listen to stories & experiences as well as her compassion will serve the community well.
I fully support Christine & look forward to casting my vote on October 14th!"
"I believe with Christine's education and her experience as a teacher she will bring a wealth of knowledge to the Sooke School Board. Her volunteer work with the youth in our community will make her an outstanding Trustee. Christine is all about the students and what is best for them."
“I was so pleased when I heard Christine was going to run for an SD62 Trustee position. She is exactly what the new board will need moving forward, someone who has the passion, energy and experience to step in and get the job done. With 5 existing Trustees not running, the new board will need the leadership, knowledge and commitment to excellence that Christine has demonstrated over the years. Christine has my endorsement and my vote. On October 15th, vote Christine Lervold!
I am very pleased to endorse Christine Lervold on the SD62 Board of Education. Christine's commitment to the community and unique educational and professional background will ensure that the school district continues to provide excellent education opportunities for students. Christine understands the complexities of growth and how to leverage relationships to build the schools needed for the future. Her experiences as a parent and a teacher ensures that she has the right skillset to provide excellent leadership and governance of the district.
