New CedarBridge Academy principal announced
A veteran teacher has been named the new principal of CedarBridge Academy.
Kenneth Caesar, a former principal of Sandys Secondary Middle School, has been acting principal at the Devonshire school for four years.
Mr. Caesar said: “I am looking forward to continuing this journey to ensure excellence in teaching and learning and that every student leaves CedarBridge Academy prepared to engage in further studies should they wish or contribute to society in a meaningful way.”
Kalmar Richards, the former principal who left to take over as Commissioner of Education, said Mr Caesar was a key figure in the Government’s plan to shake up public education.
Ms Richards added: “Mr. Caesar has and continues to play a key role in our school transformation process and I look forward to his continued leadership as we move forward with plans for the new signature learning programme.”
Jason Wade, the chairman of the school’s board and a Progressive Labour Party MP, said: “I wish to thank all of those who took part in the selection process for this key leadership position.
“Please join me in extending warm congratulations to Mr. Caesar as the substantive principal of CedarBridge Academy.”
Diallo Rabain, the education minister, congratulated Mr Caesar on his appointment.
He said Mr Caesar had “always demonstrated his commitment to education”. Mr Rabain added: “Whenever we talk, his number one goal, is one that speaks to the things necessary for the success of our students.
“I have no doubt that Principal Caesar will continue to work hard as an advocate for the young people of Bermuda."
