Mr. Chad Holtum, Head of School
The Glenlyon Norfolk School Board of Governors is excited to announce Mr. Chad Holtum as the new Head of School starting July 1, 2020. Mr. Holtum has been instrumental in the growth of the GNS community since 2013, including helping to shape our Family Boarding program and the ongoing WONDER campaign.
Mr. Holtum has a strong commitment to community, and that starts right in our own area. He encourages local students to join the school through the GNS Community Scholarships program, which grants entrance scholarships of up to $10,000 to new domestic students in Grades 8 to 12.
“The GNS Community Scholarships are an excellent opportunity for students to be part of our school while gaining exceptional university preparation,” said Mr. Holtum. “We are excited to offer these scholarships and give students opportunities that will help support them throughout life.”
Mr. Holtum fully believes in the benefits of the GNS experience as his two sons and nephew are all students at the school.
“My favourite thing about GNS is our community,’ he said. “It’s our students, faculty and staff, alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of GNS that help with our continued success. We are very fortunate to have such a strong community.”
Previous to joining GNS, Mr. Holtum taught in the public school system before moving to work with independent schools including Queen Margaret’s and Shawnigan Lake School. We are excited for Mr. Holtum to continue as an advocate for Glenlyon Norfolk School and want to wish him a warm welcome as the new Head of School.
