Principal/Vice-Principal Message

It is with mixed feelings that we have recently learned that Mr. Newbold will be leaving the Georges Vanier family at the end of this school year and will become the Vice Principal of T.E. Scott Elementary.  We are tremendously grateful for the opportunity we have had to work and learn with Mr. Newbold and we wish him continued success at his new school. Our entire school community will miss you, Mr. Newbold! We will cherish the memories and friendships that have been formed together during your four years at Georges Vanier. Thank you for all the hard work you have done every day to help make our school a special place to learn.

We will be welcoming Mrs. Carin Porcellato as our new Vice Principal in September. Mrs. Porcellato is joining us from Bear Creek Elementary and she is thrilled to be starting her administrative career at our school. Over the next few weeks, Mrs. Procellato hopes to meet the students at Vanier and we know that she will be welcomed into our amazing community.

Mrs. Lianne McBride and Mr. Brian Newbold
