Congratulations to our principal on receiving this prestigious award from The Learning Partnership.
“Behind every great school is a great principal who is not only an outstanding educator but an excellent manager and leader,” says Peoples. “These principals are presidents of their schools; they communicate compelling visions, engage their communities, mentor their staff and, most importantly, create safe and nurturing learning environments for students. We are delighted to be recognizing these individuals as examples of excellence in public education.”
Sheldon Barry has served in many leadership positions at both the school and system levels. He has applied his expertise as an instructional leader to improve learning at Holy Heart of Mary High School which offers credit recovery and a variety of other programs targeting at-risk students and early leavers. To meet the needs of students from 50 different countries with a settlement worker for students new to Canada and programs for ESL, and LEARN (Literacy Enhancement and Academic Readiness for Newcomers), Sheldon has partnered with community organizations, businesses and agencies. The McCain Foundation’s $45 000 donation led to the establishment of the school’s Credit Recovery Centre, and a grant from the Future Shop Generation Tech Lab refurbished the language labs. Under Sheldon’s innovative leadership, collaboration matters and students are excited to attend Holy Heart of Mary High
