Tony Saremba will move on from his current role as principal in Bowser to be principal of Winchelsea Elementary. He came to the district in 2007 after serving as a teacher and principal in several Nanaimo area schools.

She has also taught at Nanoose Bay, Parksville, Arrowview, French Creek and Errington elementary schools.

Kerri Steel, currently vice-principal and student support services teacher at Errington Elementary, will take on the position of vice-principal of Winchelsea Elementary, where she taught in the past.

Finally John Williams has been reassigned as principal of Errington Elementary from his current role, where he has been vice-principal of Springwood Middle School since 2006.
