The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is pleased to welcome Carlo Poretta as the Vice Principal of St. Andrew’s School, commencing in the 2016/17 school year.  Carlo has been in school administration for five years and brings a wealth of experience in elementary and secondary schools.  Carlo will join the administrative team at St. Andrew’s, and will focus on the management of the junior and senior high grades in the K-12 school.

“HFCRD is pleased to welcome Carlo to the division and to St. Andrew’s School. He has demonstrated extensive knowledge in many key areas and is a good fit for our division,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin.  “Carlo will be a fantastic addition to the St. Andrew’s administrative team and I expect his transition to St. Andrew’s to be a smooth one.”

Carlo earned his Masters in History at York University in Toronto, Ontario.  He also holds a baccalaureate with Honours in political science and history.  He has fostered positive relationships with students and staff throughout his career, and describes his philosophy of education as student centered and firmly believes that all students can succeed.  Carlo is very involved in his community through various committees, organizations and sports teams.

“When students’ strengths are highlighted and nurtured, the student builds confidence and resiliency, and this leads to student success both in academics and in personal development,” said Carlo.  “Being an educator brings the invaluable responsibility to positively impact the community and society in which we live, and I will strive to do this to the best of my ability.”

HFCRD wishes current Vice Principal Linda Vanden Berg the best as she returns to the classroom at St. Andrew’s School!
