Mrs. Nicole Rawlinson has been appointed as the new assistant principal of École Lacombe Upper Elementary School, effective at the start of the 2017/2018 school year.  This vacancy became available as a result of the current assistant principal, Mr. Ian Wilson, moving to the role of Health and Wellness Coordinator for the school division.
