A new deputy superintendent has been named for the Holy Spirit school system.
Paul Dunphy, currently an administrator in the Christ the Redeemer division near Calgary, has been appointed effective Jan. 1.
Born and raised in Ottawa, he received his undergraduate and education degrees from Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, Que., and then his Master of Education from the University of Calgary. He began his teaching career with Christ the Redeemer in 1995.
“Paul was chosen from a field of very strong applicants across the country,” says Ken Sampson, who is currently serving as deputy superintendent following the retirement of Chris Smeaton. “Paul is a well-rounded school-based administrator, who is faith-filled and leads with integrity.”
Sampson will move into the superintendent position following Smeaton’s retirement in the new year.
Dunphy says he’s “deeply humbled and incredibly excited” to take on the new role.
“Holy Spirit is a strong, vibrant school division, committed to academic excellence and the well-rounded development of its students in an environment permeated by our faith.”
