Principal Maurice Jacob is excited about this unique photo, a sort of time capsule for Immaculate Conception School in Delta. As it happened, four generations of teachers arrived to work at the Catholic school Nov. 21.

Herman Kuipers (right) is a retired Immaculate Conception school educator and the former teacher of principal Maurice Jacob (second from right). Kuipers taught Jacob in Grade 6 and made a re-appearance at the school as a substitute teacher this November.

Teacher Chris Prime (second from left) was in Grade 10 when he was Jacob’s student, and teacher Kristina Tzetzos (an Immaculate Conception graduate) was Prime’s student in Grade 4.
