PORT HARDY—School District 85 last week announced the hiring of Carol Robertson as its new assistant superintendent of schools, beginning Aug. 1.

Robertson will replace current assistant superintendent Katherine McIntosh, who has been hired as superintendent of the Coast Mountains School District (SD82).

Robertson, who currently serves as principal of Teulon Elementary in Manitoba, has years of experience in teaching and administration in Canada, Germany and England. She has a Masters of Education degree with an advanced diploma in Special Needs Education.

“We are fortunate to have such an experienced and professional educator joining our District team,” said Leightan Wishart, SD85 Board chair. “We know that Ms. Robertson will continue the outstanding service that Ms. Katherine McIntosh has provided our district over the past six years.”

Robertson will finish the current school year in Manitoba and relocate to the North Island in the summer.

“I look forward to meeting the staff, students, and families of the North Island when I arrive in the district this August,” she said.

McIntosh, meanwhile, visited Terrace last week to meet with School District 82 officials and receive an official welcome at its March 12 school board meeting. Members of the Suwilaawks Community School drummers were on hand at the school board office and performed traditional songs to welcome her. McIntosh takes over her new post at the end of this school year.

“I’m so honoured to be here on your traditional territory,” McIntosh told the Suwilaawks’ students. “I’m very excited to work with you when I arrive.”
