Sports parent of four kids in the Chilliwack school system, Natalie Sache is running for trustee.
Sache grew up in Chilliwack attended school from Kindergarten to graduation and on to a bachelors degree at the University of the Fraser Valley in 2005.
She’s a volunteer in the community, she’s been involved with a Parent Advisory Committee, and is heavily active in minor hockey and youth basketball. In 2012, she was honoured to receive the Community Sport Hero Award from the City of Chilliwack in recognition for volunteering with children’s sports.
A main concern for Sache in the district is planning ahead for needed space.
“For example, there are currently 93 portables being used in School District 33,” she says. “This needs to be dealt with, as it is an urgent issue.”
She said the shortage of teachers on call is another issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
Sache concluded that all students should feel safe attending public school, and it’s crucial to set young people up for success.
“If all practiced tolerance, acceptance and compassion, we would have an optimal learning environment.”
There will be 17 names on the ballot to choose from for the seven seats on the Chilliwack school board. The election is Oct. 20.
