Congratulations Victoria Cornick, Principal of Good Shepherd School

  Posted: June 15, 2020

The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is pleased to announce that Victoria Cornick will be the Principal of Good Shepherd School in Peace River. Victoria, who is currently the Principal of Holy Family School in Grimshaw, has accepted a transfer that will commence in September 2020, after current Principal Tina McDonald announced last week that she will be moving out of province. Victoria is passionate about student learning and supporting others in their educational growth.

“During her time at HFCRD, Victoria Cornick has proven herself as an effective leader who goes above and beyond to foster an educational environment that cultivates success for all students,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin. “She is committed to her faith, and makes decisions in the best interest of the whole child – mind, body and spirit.”

After earning her Bachelor of Education from Memorial University of Newfoundland, Victoria started her career with HFCRD in 2005. Victoria and her husband Kerry moved from Newfoundland to Valleyview where she taught at St. Stephen´s School for eight years, including two years as an Assistant Principal. 

In 2013, Victoria became the Principal of Holy Family School in Grimshaw, where she was an integral part of the Grimshaw Shared School Facility Project. In 2014, Victoria graduated with a Master’s degree in Educational Studies from the University of Alberta. 

“Thank you to the students, parents, staff and entire school community at Holy Family School for seven wonderful years. I have been proud to lead the dedicated staff at HFS and work with all the amazing students. I will miss them dearly,” said Victoria. “I look forward to taking on a new leadership role and being part of the Good Shepherd School community.”

HFCRD thanks current Principal Tina McDonald for her years of service, and wishes her the very best in her future endeavours!
