Welcome to our new and ever-evolving Bison Run School website. Let me introduce myself. My name is Caterina Romeo-Mzakar, the appointed Principal of Bison Run School – Treaty 1. This website will provide the latest updates on the construction of the new, state of the art, inclusive K to 8 school in Pembina Trails School Division in the new and growing residential area of Waverley West in the Bison Run sub-division
As Principal of Bison Run School, I am honoured and enthusiastic to work with students, families and staff to build a new, inclusive and diverse K to 8 school. My studies in language acquisition, my personal journey as the child of immigrant parents learning English, my passion for multiculturalism, and my 30 years of experience as a leader, educator, and learner provide a foundation for all of us to share our voices, to learn boundlessly and to work respectfully.
My work both professionally and personally, in inclusive education, in early, middle and senior years instruction/leadership, and in multi-language acquisition have provided me with a global experience of education. Today's learner is interactive, multi-dimensional and technologically savvy. Information is at our fingertips, as are the many opportunities for students to have an "apercu" of the world around them.
Serving as the Principal of the new Bison Run School is a privilege, a challenge and a most humbling extension and natural next step of my life’s work. I look forward to collecting the community of Bison Run and forging forward to begin a new, inclusive school where all are welcome and feel empowered to reach their greatest potentials – Accomplish Anything.
