We have learned that Mr. John Reid, a longtime staff member of Porter Creek Secondary passed away on November 14, 2020. Mr. Reid will be remembered as someone who was fiercely dedicated to the Porter Creek school community. His unmatched work ethic, meticulous organization and constant energy will remain as memories to all who had the good fortune to have been taught by, and worked with, him.
After retirement, John stayed active as a teacher-on-call at the ILC and PCSS. He also mentored staff, and was committed to making sure that big events like our Remembrance Day ceremony went ahead smoothly, volunteering many hours to organize and mentor behind the scenes.
PCSS will miss him.
We will be flying our flags at half mast during the week of November 23 to 27 to commemorate John.
Former students or staff who would like to leave a card, story, or note of condolence, we will collect those through "no contact drop-off" in our front office and deliver them to the family on your behalf.
At John's request, there will be no viewing or funeral service but donations can be made to fight Prostate Cancer: https://www.prostatecancer.ca/Donate/Ways-to-Donate
