The new principal of Carberry Collegiate (grades 5-12) is Boissevain native, Bruce McCallum. He lives in Brandon with his wife, Marcy, a school teacher and daughter Madison, a second year Brandon University student and Lynden, a grade 10 Vincent Massey student.
Mr. McCallum has been employed by the Portage la Prairie School Division for the past 20 years. He taught physical education for nine years at junior and senior high levels and was the supervising principal for ten Colony Schools for 11 years. His duties extended to 22 colonies and their high school equivalency programs, via internet plus director of adult education.
Bruce received a Bachelor of Education from Brandon University (1995) and was deeply involved with Hockey Canada's "coach mentor" program.
What attracted him to a principalship in Carberry? "I was born and raised in a small agricultural town like Carberry and have heard good comments about the school and community."
His daughter, Madison, is an eight time provincial figure skating champion under the guidance of coach Tammy McKay while son Lynden is drafted by Dauphin Kings. Father, Bob McCallum is a former long time councillor and reeve in the RM of Morton.
Mr. McCallum is looking forward to meeting the students and staff and the challenges of a new school year.
Classes open for students Wednesday, September 9.
