Collingwood's Board of Governors has appointed Lisa Evans as Collingwood's Acting Head of School. Lisa, a dedicated educator, is part of the fabric of our community, having been with Collingwood for 25 years. As Head of the Morven Campus since 2001, Lisa has been responsible for the day to day operations of the Morven Campus.
Lisa is passionate about her relationships with students, family, staff and faculty. A self-described coach at heart, Lisa loves working with students on recognizing their strengths and pursuing their passions, while focusing on areas of improvement. Lisa's philosophy is seeing students as individuals, being fair while firm, and holding our students to a high standard of personal conduct and as positive contributors to our school community.
Lisa is co-founder of Collingwood's successful Encounter Program—a student-led retreat that focuses on personal growth and development, and has coached countless high school, regional, UBC Junior Varsity and BC teams for Field Hockey. She was a member of the Canadian Women's National U-21 Field Hockey Squad and the UBC Women's Field Hockey Varsity Team.
Lisa received her BA double major in English and Social Studies, and Bachelor of Education: Secondary School (English and Social Studies) before working on her Masters in Educational Administration—all from the University of British Columbia.
As Acting Head of School and Head of the Morven Campus, Lisa will lead our experienced Senior Team as they continue Collingwood's important work of preparing young people for meaningful lives.
