Two school principals from Newfoundland and Labrador will be honoured next month in a special ceremony in Toronto.
These exceptional educators have each been honoured with the Outstanding Principal award for 2012, an accolade presented annually by charitable organization The Learning Partnership.
This year’s winners from this province are; David Hamlyn, Leo Burke Academy, Bishop’s Falls and Christina Pike, St. Paul’s Junior High, St. John’s.
Winners are chosen by a pool of nominees whose names are put forward by their school staff, peers and students. Nominations are reviewed and final winners chosen by a national selection committee.
Both principals will receive their awards alongside 38 of their peers in a gala dinner and ceremony on Feb. 28.
