Lane Moore will be taking over the helm as the new principal of Bentley School beginning this coming September.

Mr. Lane Moore has been appointed as the new Principal of Bentley School, effective at the beginning of the 2008/2009 school year.

“The selection committee was particularly impressed with his interpersonal skills and his ongoing commitment to staff development,“ said Deputy Superintendent Kurt Sacher. “Lane brings a natural appreciation for rural education and will be a tremendous addition to the proud staff of Bentley School.”

Moore holds a Bachelor of Education with a major in Physical Education from the University of Calgary and a Bachelor of Physical Education with a major in Coaching from the University of Alberta. Moore is currently the Chair of the Wolf Creek Administrator’s Association and plans to complete his Master of Education degree this summer with City University.

Moore began his teaching career in 1996 at Lord Beaverbrook High School with the Calgary Board of Education where he taught Physical Education to Grade 10, 11 and 12 students. He joined Wolf Creek Public Schools in 1998 teaching Physical Education, Applied Math 10 and Financial Management at Lacombe Composite High School for two years.

Moore has seven years of successful principal leadership, with four of those years at Lougheed School and the past three years as principal of Crestomere School.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to work at Bentley School. I have heard many great things about the school, in particular, how warm and welcoming the staff and students are,” Moore said. “I look forward to getting to know the parents and community; I know I have large shoes to fill with Lothar leaving. I am excited with the opportunities a K-12 school offers and I look forward to the challenges of continuing to build upon what has been established.”

Moore is replacing Lothar Kemski who announced his resignation earlier this year after 17 years as the school’s principal.

The Bentley School has approximately 351 students in Grades K-12.
