Andy Cabral, Principal
M.A., B. Ed., OCT, PQP
For those who don’t know him already, here are some things you should know about our Principal, Andy Cabral.
Firstly, you should know he’s got all that ‘academic’ stuff you’d expect! He completed his first degree and teacher-training program at McGill University (Montreal). His Master’s Degree from Middlebury College (USA) also included graduate courses taken on site at Lincoln College, Oxford University (UK). He is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers and did his Principal’s Qualification Program at York University (Toronto).
Secondly, he’s got experience! He’s been teaching since 1996 and has experience in public and private schools, both near and as far away as Seoul, South Korea! He’s been a teacher at BCS since 2001 and led the High School division as the Vice-Principal prior to becoming our Principal.
Thirdly, he’s thoroughly invested in BCS! With his wife Annette, a long-time teacher in the Junior High, and 4 kids enrolled at BCS this year from SK up to grade 10, Mr. Cabral is a major stakeholder in this place!
Finally, you should know he has a heart for God and for helping kids of all ages develop a relationship with Him through Christ. His favourite verse is Matthew 5:16— “Let your light so shine before others, that they may see your good works and glorify the Father in heaven.”
Make sure to take the chance to introduce yourself, any time you see him around the school. You may find him in the office, coaching a sports team, leading a Mission trip, directing traffic, or simply chatting with our students!
