The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators -

As the Vice Prin­ci­pal of Haver­gal Col­lage, Lois Rowe is re­spon­si­ble for the aca­demic pro­gram, in­clud­ing con­nect­ing the cur­ric­u­lar and co-cur­ric­u­lar pro­grams to the mis­sion of the school: ‘Pre­par­ing Young Women to Make a Dif­fer­ence’. One of her most sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ences to date has been when she was the Head of the Mid­dle School at Haver­gal, and par­tic­i­pated in a day that was fa­cil­i­tated with the Grade 8 teach­ers and stu­dents to “ex­plore var­i­ous as­pects of the con­cept of tol­er­ance in smaller groups." "It was an in­cred­i­ble day. One stu­dent or­ga­nized guest speak­ers and a round­table dis­cus­sion on is­sues re­lated to the LGBTQ com­mu­nity. Another stu­dent in­vited an ath­lete who com­peted in the Spe­cial Olympics to come to the school and lead a class in rhyth­mic gym­nas­tics,” she says. Rowe is proud of her work in sup­port­ing and cel­e­brat­ing stu­dent achieve­ments, whether help­ing a stu­dent get over an aca­demic hur­dle or nav­i­gat­ing a dif­fi­cult per­sonal sit­u­a­tion. She is known as some­one who al­ways does her best to par­tic­i­pate in all as­pects of school life. “Our stu­dents are at the cen­tre of all we do at Haver­gal. Be­ing present with our stu­dents is what brought me to the pro­fes­sion and con­tin­ues to

be my great­est joy."
