Principal's Message

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new “Mr. Bourne” at South Ed.  I am so excited to join the community here at South Edwardsburg and continue the fantastic work that is being done here.  I recognize the big shoes to be filled with the previous Mr. Bourne’s departure and look forward to the opportunity to work with your children, their teachers, and the communities of Cardinal and Johnstown.  While I will be getting to know your children quickly, I hope to meet you as well over the coming months, whether through school council, school events or casual conversations at drop-off and pick-up.

In case you have been wondering, here is a little bit about me.  I have had the opportunity to teach in numerous schools in the Upper Canada District School Board over the last 13 years in the communities of Perth, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls and Russell.  When teaching, I was a business and math teacher with some other subjects sprinkled in.  For the past 3 ½ years, I have been a vice-principal, first at Carleton Place High School and then at Perth & District Collegiate.  I grew up in the Smiths Falls area and currently live south of Kemptville with my wife and 2 children.

This year is going to be a great year of fun and learning at South Edwardsburg.  If you have any questions, concerns, or would just like to meet me, please don’t hesitate to stop by or give me a call at the school.
