Pine Creek School Division
The Pine Creek School Division Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of the Superintendent position to Mr. Bruce Lyons, effective July 1, 2017.
Lyons comes to our Division after spending recent years as a consultant at the Department of Education in the Instruction, Curriculum and Assessment Branch and more recently in the Student Achievement Support Unit. During a 36 year career in the field of Education, Mr. Lyons has fulfilled principalships in Sioux Valley First Nations, Holmfield Colony School and Minto School. He also has twenty three years of resource and regular classroom teaching experience. Mr. Lyons received his Master of Education Degree at the Brandon University in 2007 and has since upgraded his School Principal’s Certification to Level 2 and has obtained his Special Education and Special Education Coordinator Certification.
Mr. Lyons believes that student success in all aspects of their lives is enhanced through the development of their social/emotional skills set. His commitment to that belief has led him to become certified as an Affiliate National Trainer of the Lions Quest program, where he has conducted certification workshops for hundreds of teachers from all over the province, focusing on service learning. Mr. Lyons is well versed in the importance of technology throughout Education and looks forward to continuing with the Pine Creek SD in these areas. Mr. Lyons has always been an active participant in community events, with an extensive background in athletics, both playing and coaching, and looks forward to the possibilities during his time in the Pine Creek communities. Mr. Lyons will begin his work in Pine Creek School Division on May 1, when he transitions here as the assistant superintendent to the end of June, prior to entering into his first three year contract with the Division.
Please join the Board of Trustees in welcoming Bruce and his wife, Katherine, to the Pine Creek School Division.
