Markham, Ontario – NOIC Academy is excited to welcome our new principal, Laura Green, who will be joining us starting this Monday. Ms. Green comes to us with 37 years of experience in education and has a strong background in international education. We believe that her expertise and leadership will be invaluable assets to our school community.
As we welcome Ms. Green, we would also like to express our gratitude to our outgoing principal, Timothy Yawney. Under his guidance, NOIC Academy has achieved numerous milestones. During his tenure, Mr. Yawney has overseen the implementation of a holistic online/offline hybrid education system that has resulted in a significant improvement in student academic achievement. He supported the inclusive and vibrant school community that NOIC Academy is known for; a place where all students feel welcome and supported. That support will be extended during the transition period, as Mr. Yawney will work with the school to ensuring all students, staff and community stakeholders are well cared for and set up for success.
We are deeply grateful for all that Mr. Yawney has done for our school and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
At the same time, we are thrilled to have Laura Green join us as our new principal. We believe that her experience, dedication, and passion for education will enable our school to continue to grow and thrive. We are confident that under her leadership, we will be able to continue to grow the success of our school.
Please join us in welcoming Laura Green and thanking Timothy Yawney for his contributions to our school.
