Arden Leigh School

A History by Bernard Chandler

About the author...

He was born on April 17, 1936 in a log house with dirt floor on the family homestead, NW6 Twp 37 Rge8 W2. He attended Arden Leigh School from September, 1943 to June, 1953, completing grades one to eleven, the last three years by provincial correspondence courses. His formal teacher education began at the Saskatoon Teachers' College in their ten-month teacher education program. Subsequently he completed a B.Ed. and M.Ed. at the University of Alberta and all but his dissertation in the doctoral program at the University of British Columbia.

His professional career began as the teacher at Arden Leigh School and concluded as the Superintendent of Schools of the Greater Victoria School District at Victoria, B.C. In the interim he taught in Yukon and Alberta, and was a principal, superintendent of schools and an education consultant in Alberta.

He attributes his success as a leader to the meaningful involvement and collaboration of parents and staff in all district's directions and significant decisions. With a full system team improvements were made in the program of teaching and learning.
