One of 40 across Canada

A school principal in Bradford West Gwillimbury has risen above the crowd. Christine Leung, of Mother Teresa Catholic School in Bradford, has been named one of Canada’s outstanding principals by The Learning Partnership. She is one of 40 principals across the country to receive the honour. Principals are nominated by their peers, school staff and community members. A national selection committee reviews the nominations and selects winners on a representation-by-population basis. They choose candidates who demonstrate characteristics of an outstanding principal, partnerships with parents and the community, change and innovation and improving student achievement. “I am overwhelmed to be recognized by The Learning Partnership,” said Leung. “This organization successfully champions public education. I am surrounded by colleagues who work tirelessly for the good of all students.”
