Island educator Patricia Campbell received the 2012 Canada’s Outstanding Principal Award this week, says Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Alan McIsaac.

“This is a prestigious award and I would like to congratulate Principal Campbell on this wonderful accomplishment,” said Minister McIsaac. “Leadership is an important aspect of education and Ms. Campbell deserves credit for the time and effort she invests in her staff and students.”

Ms. Campbell, principal at Glen Stewart Primary School, was recently named one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals, a national award presented to 40 administrators from across Canada. The award was developed by The Learning Partnership and is presented to administrators who have demonstrated exceptional leadership.

Ms. Campbell has been teaching for 34 years and strives to help create an engaging, fun and inclusive learning environment. She is committed to improving student learning, staff development and engaging parents in the school community. She works tirelessly to ensure the needed resources and attention are put toward helping students reach their full potential.

“Principal Campbell shows tremendous work ethic and commitment to her students,” said Minister McIsaac. “She is a terrific example for all teachers, school administrators and students and we are fortunate to have experienced and dedicated leaders like her within the Island’s education system.”

In the Canada’s Outstanding Principals program, principals are nominated by their peers, school staff and community members in an extensive nomination and selection process. Nominations are reviewed and final winners chosen by the National Selection Committee.
