  • Announcing the Retirement of Darlene Flett

    Darlene Flett

    The LRSD Board of Trustees accepted the notice of retirement for Darlene Flett on February 20, 2024. 

    A lifelong learner, Darlene completed her Bachelor of Arts, at the University of Manitoba in 1987 with a major in English and minor in French, followed by her Bachelor of Education in 1989. She then received her Post- Baccalaureate in Education in 2012. 

    Darlene began her career at Collège de Rivers in September 1989, teaching English to students in Grades 9 to 12. In 1990 she joined the Evergreen School Division before transitioning to the then St. Boniface School Division as a teacher at Niakwa Place School in 1995. She moved on to General Vanier from 2008-2015 teaching in both the early and middle years, as well as being the Positive Behaviour Support Teacher and Middle Years Literacy Support Teacher.  

    Darlene later moved to the Itinerant Behaviour Support Teacher position where she developed behaviour plans and initiatives in the core areas of Social Competency and Behaviour Autonomy.  

    Darlene truly believes that children do well if they can. Her leadership in helping school teams understand and adopt this mantra has positively impacted the school journey of many students. Darlene, know that your contributions are truly appreciated by students, families, and colleagues. 

    Darlene joined the École Van Belleghem community as Vice-Principal in 2021, where her career in the Louis Riel School Division will end. 

    Darlene is to be commended for modelling her love of the French language to students in both the English program and French Immersion program. Her transition to a French-speaking work environment late in her career is a testament to her commitment to lifelong learning. Bravo! 

    I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work closely with Darlene. We wish her health and happiness as she embarks on new adventures in retirement. 

    Jeff Anderson 

    Assistant Superintendent
