Posted on 01/29/2019

A Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) principal is one of 30 exceptional educators to be recognized by The Learning Partnership as Canada’s Outstanding Principals for 2019. Robin Dashnay, Principal at Chris Hadfield Public School, joins previous SCDSB administrators as a member of the National Academy of Canada’s Outstanding Principals™.

“Robin has created a learning and working environment that fosters student achievement, well-being and inclusion, and this collective vision has led to improved academic outcomes for all students,” says Steve Blake, Director of Education, SCDSB. “We’re incredibly proud of him as one of our many tremendous school leaders, and are pleased that he is being recognized for the countless contributions he has made in SCDSB schools.”

Now celebrating its 15th year, The Learning Partnership’s Canada’s Outstanding Principals program recognizes the unique and vital contributions of principals in publicly funded schools. The 30 principals, nominated by parents, colleagues and community members, and chosen by a national selection committee, are being celebrated for demonstrating innovation, leadership and for employing creativity in finding solutions and opportunities within their school communities. They will be recognized for their accomplishments at the annual Canada’s Outstanding Principals awards celebration on February 26, 2019 in Toronto.
