The former vice-principal at Skeena Junior Secondary School says he almost made it into retirement.

Dave Crawley will be instead taking over from Glen Palahicky as the principal at Veritas Catholic School.

And while Crawley emphasizes the role will be short term – up to a year at most – he said he is looking forward to the position.

“It is exciting, it’s a chance, and it will certainly be a challenge in some respects,” Crawley said.

Crawley said he decided to take the position after he was urged to by others, who knew the school was having a hard time replacing Palahicky.

He said he is familiar with some of the people at Veritas already, having sent his own daughter there for her elementary education.

Having spent 35 years as a teacher and administrator in the Coast Mountains School District, Crawley has plenty of experience, having manned the helm at Copper Mountain Elementary, Clarence Michiel and Uplands Elementary schools in the past.
