Our Support Staff

Mrs Ann Oudman

Secretary // office(at)cachs.ca

I began my “CACHS” career in 1990/91 when I volunteered to do the office work in the small one room portable behind Lacombe Christian School. I was hired as the school’s secretary in November 1993 and have had the privilege of working here since. I love to see the students come into grade 10 and watch them grow as young Christian men and women before they step out into the world. I love my position here and especially enjoy the daily interaction with the students, parents and staff and pray that I reflect God’s love to all. When not at school I enjoy walking, reading, gardening, travelling, and spending time with my family, especially our six grandchildren.


Mrs Veronica Den Oudsten

Career Counsellor // vdenoudsten(at)cachs.ca

I attended Lacombe Christian School many moons ago and have always valued Christian education where one can learn about God’s kingdom and be challenged in their faith journey. I graduated from the University of Calgary, worked in youth care, and raised my family. I started part time work here at CACHS in 2000 and have enjoyed the opportunity to encourage, challenge and try to guide the students that come to CACHS. My conversations involve finding out what each student wants to be, but centers on who they want to become as a child of God. I am also involved with extracurricular through boys basketball, girls soccer, and outdoors club.



Mrs Candace Slomp

Development Director // developmentdirector(at)cachs.ca

Assistant Secretary/Record Keeper

I was born and raised in Edmonton where I met my husband. We moved to Ponoka in 2008 so that he could attend school to become a Psychiatric nurse. We had every intention of moving back to Edmonton but God had other plans. I started working at CACHS in 2019 and am very happy to be working in a school where God is central to everything.
