Province Recognizes Two Outstanding Principals

The Provincial Government has recognized two Principals.

John Antle, Principal of Exploits Valley Intermediate, and Michael Tobin, Principal of Paradise Elementary, were named to the list of Canada’s Outstanding Principals of 2018.

The Learning Partnership’s Canada’s Outstanding Principals program has annually recognized the important contributions of the country’s top 40 principals in publicly-funded schools.

Candidates are nominated by parents, colleagues and community members, and are chosen by a national selection committee for their work demonstrating creativity, innovation, leadership and student achievement and success.

Antle has been recognized for his leadership role in the development of the Positive Behavioural Intervention Strategies program, which focuses on rewarding positive actions and behaviours in the school.

Tobin’s efforts are being acknowledged for his focus on innovation and his encouragement for more technology-facilitated learning within the school.
