Melton Moyo - Principal
I began my teaching career in Zimbabwe 1985 where I worked for five years. I began my career in Canada in 1991 as a supply teacher and as full time teacher in 1994. I began my administration journey in 2000 after serving for eight years as head of special education. Although there are many styles of leadership, I am a firm believer that the most effective leadership style is that of a shepherd, leading from the back. Through this approach it is easier to see the sheep that strays, limps or is energetic.
During my spare time I love to work with charitable organization. I have my own registered charity that takes up the bulk of my time during the summer months.
