School District No. 46 (SD46) has named a new district principal.
Vanessa Clarke has been appointed to the position effective Feb. 1, 2013.
Dan Galazka, currently District Principal of Student Support, will be assuming responsibilities with the Delta School District.
Clarke holds a masters degree in counselling psychology and has held the position of vice-principal at Chatelech Secondary School since September 2009. Joining the school district in 1997, Clarke has been an early intermediate teacher at Gibsons Elementary School and special education teacher at Chat and Halfmoon Bay Elementary Schools.
“I am enthusiastic about my new role in the school district and look forward to continue working with students, staff and parents in our community,” said Clarke.
School superintendent Patrick Bocking thanked Galazka for her fine service with SD46.
“I am excited about the talents and skills that Ms. Clarke will bring to her new assignment,” said Bocking. “I would also like to thank Dan Galazka for his commitment to the education and welfare of all of our students, to his colleagues and the student support team since the spring of 2011.”
SD46 will develop a process to fill the vacancy of vice-principal at Chat.
