We welcomed our new Principal on August 1, 2017. Kathrin Sander took over from Mark Benkelmann, who returned to Germany at the end of July.

Over the past nine years, Kathrin held the position of principal at a primary school in her hometown of Hamburg. Her husband and their dog Rudi joined Kathrin for her Canadian adventure in Toronto. Here are a few impressions she shared about her early days in Toronto:

“As a principal, I am used to handle a variety of challenges and surprises on a daily basis. Toronto presents itself to me as particularly surprising with its quickly changing neighborhoods, its warm, welcoming and kind people and with its unbelievable width and beautiful landscape. As a native of Hamburg, I`m also very happy to experience a real summer. There will be so much to discover and explore for us and we are really looking forward to it.”
