Principals gathering


Nunavut school principals and other education staff gathered to network, update their training and learn new skills in Iqaluit last month.

The Nunavut Principals’ Conference ran from Sept. 21 to 27.

Principals from all regions attended the gathering focused on Safe and Caring Schools.

The principals learned a number of strategies for ensuring safe and healthy schools in order to foster optimal academic, social-emotional and cultural growth.

Those who attended the conference returned to their communities, students and coworkers with sharper tools in their schoolbags, such as learning to become a better ally, practical ways to help students self-regulate their behaviour and best practices for a trauma-informed school environment.
