Dear Olympic Heights community, My name is Trevor Barkley. I am extremely excited and honoured to be joining the Olympic Heights School community as your new Principal on February 1, 2021. I have already connected with Karen Barry, Acting Principal and with Director Lori Cooper to ensure smooth continuity in addressing school goals and priorities. During my career I have had many diverse school experiences, and held a myriad of roles including teacher, resource teacher, school-based ESL coordinator, assistant principal, principal, staffing consultant and staffing coordinator. During the past 20 years I have held formal leadership roles in our system and see myself as a collaborative, visionary, reflective, inclusive, responsive, leader. I believe in developing effective relationships in an environment of open feedback and trust. I believe that all students can succeed, and to make that happen, we all need to work collaboratively. We all possess strengths and it is our work at school to help students see and understand their strengths to be the best version of themselves. I appreciate your understanding during this transition. Please rest assured that our priority will continue to be to provide a quality learning program for all students. I look forward to meeting you all and learning together. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org Happy Holidays. Trevor Barkley
