School principal was a true educator
My husband and I were saddened to read in the paper last week of the death of Derek Adam. Our daughter, Katherine Desjardins, was lucky enough to have attended Homewood School during his time as principal. She found him to be fair, encouraging and approachable. We, as parents, were always impressed by his obvious dedication and commitment to his school and his warm and engaging attitude to parents and students alike.
He was a true educator and I wish all schools could have a person of his calibre to lead them. We send our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. Sally Desjardins Ashford
