Mr. Colin Murphy (Gr. 11-12, Interim Principal 2019-20)

Colin Murphy has taught at Colchester Christian Academy since 1979 and is currently the homeroom teacher for grades 11 and 12.  Colin instructs students in grades 9 through 12 math and sciences (Science 10, Biology, Chemistry and Physics) as well as Drama. He has also taught Law, Political Science, World History, Physical Education and Career & Life Management courses at the Academy.

Colin, who attends The People’s Church, enjoys teaching at CCA. In fact, his own three children attended and are graduates of the Academy. He feels blessed to have been so fortunate to contribute to the school for such a long time. His hope and prayer is that he has managed to have, in some small way, a positive influence over his students’ lives. In fact, Colin can not imagine doing anything else – other than teaching at CCA – that would be as fulfilling.

Colin enjoys spending time with his wife, Nancy and their children. He enjoys skiing, fishing and basketball.

Colin’s favourite Bible verses are Psalm 8:1, 3-4, “O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth, You who have set Your glory above the heavens! When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon, and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?”  These verses remind him that he is small and insignificant in light of all of creation yet The Creator and Sustainer of the universe still cares for him.
