Canada’s Outstanding Principals Award 2014

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

Parking Lot Safety Concerns

This is a message from the administration of Holy Heart of Mary.  We are growing increasingly concerned with the potential for injury to students with respect to drivers who are disregarding the marked drop-off areas of Holy Heart of Mary. There are two entry lanes to the school, of which both are clearly marked. One lane is marked as Drop Off Lane while the other is marked as Bus Lane. While busses sometimes do not occupy those lanes, they should not be used as a drop off as students are exiting vehicles in this lane and serious injury could be caused by vehicles coming up along side those unexpecting cars.

Student safety is the top priority and the marked lanes are to be respected to ensure this goal.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
