New hand at helm of St. Paul’s

  • Print

When students return to St. Paul’s Collegiate next week, they’ll see a new face in the school office as Jean-François Godbout begins work as the school’s new principal.

Godbout acknowledges that it will be initially difficult to take over from former principal Shannon Dutson, who retired in June after 17 years in the job. However, he plans to appreciate and build on the work done by Dutson and the other staff
members.

"My philosophy is to build relationships," he said, adding that all staff have a responsibility to the school and local community.

"We’re all leaders in the building."

Godbout comes to St. Paul’s from Lorette Collegiate, and was also an administrator at St. Adolphe School. He has a master’s degree in education from the University of Manitoba and St. Boniface University.

Fluently bilingual, he is proud of his role as principal in a bilingual high school, and said bilingualism reflects Canadian society.

While he lives in Winnipeg, Godbout enjoys working in a rural school setting.
