Mr. Cappadocia Transferred To Goodfellow P.S.http://byr.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/109Mr. Cappadocia Transferred To Goodfellow P.S.<p style="margin:12pt 0in;"><span style="color:#595959;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;">It is with sadness that I am announcing my transfer from Boyne River P.S.  I embarked on the journey of overseeing the construction of Boyne River P.S. starting back in January 2016.  It was a place that I enjoyed coming to work and interacting with the wonderful staff and students every chance I had.  The staff’s kindness and passion for students and the support from families are the reasons that Boyne River will always be a special place for me.  Thank you for always caring.</span></p><p style="margin:12pt 0in;"><span style="color:#595959;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;">It was life opportunity to build Boyne River alongside with so many staff that I will be leaving behind. It was a tough day getting the news this week as this school is extremely special to me.  I am off to Goodfellow P.S. where I will be able to undertake new challenges and put my heart and soul into that school community.  Boyne River will indeed have a huge presence there and will remain a special place in my heart.</span></p><p style="margin:12pt 0in;"><span style="color:#595959;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;">Ms. Jacklin returns to the school where she put a lot of work into as well. Boyne River is being left in good hands with Ms. Jacklin and Ms. Stewart’s leadership.</span></p><p style="margin:12pt 0in;"><span style="color:#595959;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;">Thank you so much for everything Boyne River. Students… you’ve made me laugh and smile. Staff… you’ve inspired me and you made me a better leader. I am forever grateful. </span></p> <p>​</p>
