Welcome To Our Newly Retired Principals & Vice-Principals!
We are happy to welcome 10 new members to our association, members who have dedicated their lives to promoting educational opportunities for our BC students. They have joined like-minded people who believe that retirement from education does not mean retirement from life’s expectations or from curiosity. Finally, you may be able to explore what you have always wanted to do and connect more deeply with family and friends. Even during these difficult pandemic times, do enjoy your new role possibly as a grand parent babysitter, as an ardent hiker, gardener, or writer, as a volunteer for a favourite association, zooming or as a dreamer of travel to exciting destinations!
BC PRINCIPALS & VICE-PRINCIPALS’ ASSOCIATION:
We have a very close partnership with the BCPVPA, as they support us with our Association’s financials, the membership list, the Mentorship program, and the province-wide Chapter Council. We attend the Chapter Council three times a year.
BC RETIRED TEACHERS’ ASSOCIATION:
The BCRPVPA & the BCRTA work together with affinity benefits, pension updates, Medoc & Prestige insurance coverage. Please refer to newsletters or our website for more detailed information on Pensions & group or individual medical, dental, and home insurance as well as travel opportunities.
THE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM:
Now in its fifth year, the Mentorship Program was developed by the BCPVPA in conjunction with the BCRPVPA. The goal is to have retired Principals & current Principals, become mentors for newly appointed Principals & Vice-Principals throughout BC. This supportive mentorship program has continued to receive positive feedback throughout its first five years and is continuing in earnest using online platforms and scheduled calls. This year, supporting new members to our profession is especially important.
THE BCRPVPA WEBSITE:
Please refer to our website for further information about affinity, benefits, insurance, pensions, scholarships, & reports from committees, under the section ‘Meetings’.
The BC Retired Principals’ & Vice-Principals’ Executive wishes all BCRPVPA Members a year of good health, safety & rest.
Christine Johnson, BCRPVPA President 2021-2022
