Principal's Message

rrrHello. My name is Trent Taniguchi and I am the proud new principal of Barrhaven Public School. I hope you have all enjoyed a relaxing summer spending time with family, friends, and loved ones. I wanted to express how amazed I was by the positive energy I encountered during my visits to BPS at the end of last year; thank you to the entire school community for your warm welcome.

I have had many wonderful learning opportunities throughout my almost twenty years with the Board, and I have had the privilege to work within some incredible school communities. I come to Barrhaven P.S. from Manordale P.S. where I was the principal for five years; prior to that I was the vice-principal at both W. O. Mitchell and Farley Mowat Public School. I have taught a variety of grades and experienced teaching in different learning environments in primary, junior and intermediate classrooms. This continuum has always included a strong focus on Special Education, the arts and involvement in extracurricular activities.

I am the father of four busy children and we live in the Barrhaven community. Family comes first and balance is important; this is something that I will always emphasize with my staff, students and parents. I believe that a vibrant and caring school culture is the key to a student’s academic success, and it is my job to ensure that every single student feels valued and supported. I want to thank you all again for being so welcoming. In this building, it is clear that there is an engaged parent community with an incredibly dedicated staff and a fabulous group of students. I truly feel honoured to be a part of this team.
