January 26, 2016 - BARRIE, ON: Today, The Learning Partnership named Christine Leung, Principal of Mother Teresa Catholic School in Bradford West Gwillimbury, as one of Canada's outstanding principals. Christine is one of forty principals, representing every province and territory in the country, who will be honoured at a gala dinner in Toronto in February.

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 Christine Leung, Principal. "This organization successfully champions public education. I am surrounded by colleagues who work tirelessly for the good of all students."

Christine will have the opportunity to participate in an executive leadership training program at the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management. She will join The Learning Partnership's National Academy of Canada's Outstanding Principals, which includes principals Joe Timmins, Steve Morrow and Kevin Kuiack and retired principals Barry Keogh, Pattie Campbell and Syd Zyla all from the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board. The National Academy offers principals ongoing networking, mentoring and professional development so they can continually enhance their leadership skills.
