Principal Taniguchi's Message

Hello. My name is Trent Taniguchi and I am the proud principal of Barrhaven Public School. I hope you have all enjoyed a relaxing summer spending time with family, friends, and loved ones. 

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. This is my third year at Barrhaven P.S.. Prior to B.P.S., I was the principal at Manordale P.S. for five years. I also worked as the vice-principal at both W. O. Mitchell and Farley Mowat Public School. I have taught a variety of grades and experienced learning environments in the primary, junior and intermediate divisions. 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 feel honoured and enjoy being a part of such a welcoming and warm school community with an incredibly dedicated staff and a fabulous group of students.
