Three Manitoba principals among outstanding group

  • Print

Three Manitoba principals are among this year’s Canada’s Outstanding Principals announced by The Learning Partnership.

The Manitoba principals, who will join the prestigious group of 51 educators at an awards presentation and gala in Toronto Feb. 26, are: Neil Moffatt, Heritage School and Sharon Pekrul of Isaac Newton Junior High School, both in Winnipeg, as well as Tom Gallant of West Lynn Heights School in Lynn Lake.

"Behind every great school is a great principal who is not only an outstanding educator but an excellent manager and leader," says Akela Peoples, president and CEO of The Learning Partnership.

"These school CEOs communicate compelling visions, engage their communities, mentor their staff and, most importantly, create safe and nurturing learning environments for students. We are thrilled to be recognizing these individuals as examples of excellence in public education."

In the Canada’s Outstanding Principals program, principals are nominated by their peers, school staff and community members in every province and territory. Nominations are reviewed and final winners selected on a representation-by-population basis by a National Selection Committee made up of a distinguished group of Canadian education, community and private sector leaders.

Candidates are chosen using the following criteria: characteristics of outstanding principals; evidence of partnerships with parents and community; a personal story illustrating successful change and innovation that resulted in improved student achievement; and letters of support.
