Principal hired for Onoway Jr/Sr High

Northern Gateway Public Schools is pleased to announce that Mr. John Lobo, Acting Principal at Onoway Jr/Sr High School (OJSHS), has accepted the permanent position of Principal at OJSHS. Mr. Lobo has been an educator with NGPS since 1992, teaching Science, Physical Education and Career and Technology Studies (CTS) at Sangudo Community School from 1996 to 2008. That year he joined the Division Office team as a Learning Services Coordinator specializing in Information and Communication Technology.

His time and responsibilities in the coordinator role illustrated for him “the importance of collaborative program planning, innovative classrooms and supportive communication with principals and teachers, which ultimately establishes the environment for student learning.”

In 2012, Mr. Lobo accepted a position as Assistant Principal at OJSHS. John became the Acting Principal for the 2015-2016 school year.

“Mr. Lobo brings a breadth of experience to the position,” commented Superintendent of Schools Kevin Andrea, “including 23 years as an educator with NGPS in Lac Ste Anne County schools and a thorough understanding of education at school, divisional and provincial levels. We look forward to John’s continued contributions.”

Mr. Lobo holds a Bachelor of Science degree and a Bachelor of Education degree, both from the University of Saskatchewan, and a Master of Education in Leadership, Education and Technology from the University of Lethbridge.

Mr. Lobo is looking forward to the coming year, “I appreciate the opportunity to have worked with the staff, students and parents of OJSHS. I look forward to continuing to serve the community as we transition from the past of our current school building to the future home in our new building. I am excited to experience all of the ‘firsts’ that we will enjoy together this year. I am living my dream job!”
