The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) warmly congratulates Krista Veitch who will be the new Principal of Holy Family School in Grimshaw. Krista is transferring from Ecole Providence School in McLennan where she has been the Principal since 2014. Krista’s many years of teaching and administrative experience will allow her to excel in this position in Grimshaw.

“Krista has proven herself as a confident leader who has confidently led Ecole Providence School through its growth in recent years,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin. “Krista’s past success with fostering a positive learning environment for students will be a great asset as she moves into this new role.”

Krista graduated from Memorial University in Newfoundland and began her teaching career in 1999. She moved to Alberta in 2012 to teach at St. Stephen’s School in Valleyview. She has been the Principal of Ecole Providence in McLennan for the past 6 years and during this time she earned her Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. While at Providence, she developed a passion for improving school culture and providing students positive learning experiences. 

“I am grateful for the staff, students, families and community members of Ecole Providence who have made the past six years incredible and inspiring,” said Krista. “While it is difficult to leave Providence, I am looking forward to working and establishing the same strong relationships with the staff, students and families at Holy Family School.”
