There are a few vice principal changes in School District 69 (Qualicum).
Brian Worthen, who had been serving as vice-principal at Errington Elementary, will take on the VP role at Bowser Elementary, SD69 announced in a Sept. 29 press release.
And Shauna Huggins, who’s been a teacher at Oceanside elementary and in the CEAP Elementary Program, has been appointed to the vice principal position at Errington Elementary School.
Huggins was previously in the pool of vice-principal candidates, and the district said “we are now pleased to move (her) into a permanent educational leadership position.”
Before coming to SD69, Huggins taught for seven years in the Surrey School District in a variety of intermediate and primary settings.
Worthen has served at a number of SD69 schools, including briefly at Bowser elementary as acting principal. “Mr. Worthen has deep roots in this community and we believe his presence will only serve to enhance the strong school/community connection in the Bowser area,” reads the news release.
The district also thanked former SD69 principal Bobbie Coleman, who served as acting principal at Bowser elementary on an interim basis while the district considered options for filling the vacant position.
She will return to her work with Vancouver Island University supporting student teachers in their education program practicum work.
