St. Martin de Porres Primary School is sad to say goodbye to our principal, Ms. Annie Palacio. Three years ago, Ms. Annie, herself an alumna of St. Martin's, boldly stepped into incredibly challenging circumstances at our school, after two years of a very painful transition in leadership.
She came in with a clear mandate: help us regain some stability. With the help of her administrative team and local assistant manager, Ms. Annie has been able to implement numerous policies that have brought an increased sense of normalcy. "Annie has played a big part in helping us patch the holes," commented Fr. Brian, "Now it is time for the school to plot its new course."
While Ms. Annie is not sure what will come next, she remains characteristically hopeful and positive. Mrs. Dawn Wade, assistant principal, has graciously agreed to step in as interim head of school, while a search is conducted for a new principal.
Please keep our parish primary school in your prayers as we move through this time of transition
