Alka Sahai, Principal of Captain R. Wilson Public School in Oakville, has been named one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals by The Learning Partnership for 2015.

The Learning Partnership’s Canada’s Outstanding Principals program recognizes the unique and vital contributions of principals in publicly-funded schools. This year, 40 principals representing every province and territory have been chosen by a national selection committee on the basis of their exceptional contributions to their respective schools and communities.

Sahai is proud to have won the award, and credits her students and staff for the recognition.

“It’s such an honour to be recognized by The Learning Partnership and my community as one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals. I am proud to represent the Halton District School Board, which continues to set high standards in educational practice for all staff to ensure student success,” Sahai said. “As a principal, the Board has provided me with a plethora of professional growth and leadership opportunities. I don’t stand alone in accepting this award, as I have also had the support and encouragement of many mentors, staff and my family. However, students ultimately empower me to embrace my role. The ability to work with our young people and our future leaders is truly rewarding.”

David Euale, Director of Education for the Halton District School Board, said Sahai joins a distinguished group of Board educators who have received the award in the past.

“We are so pleased that Alka Sahai has been recognized for her leadership and dedication to students,” he said. “Alka joins past winners of this award from the Halton District School Board, and is member of a large group of exceptional Halton principals.”

The Learning Partnership invites nominations of outstanding principals from school boards, colleagues, parents, teachers, students and community members. Winners attend a weeklong leadership course at the Rotman School of Management in late February in Toronto. The 2015 winners join the ranks of the National Academy of Canada’s Outstanding Principals, which now boasts more than 350 members.
