Sherri Bell has announced she will be leaving her position as superintendent with the Greater Victoria School District at the end of June to assume the role of the president of Camosun College.

“Although we are saddened that Ms. Bell is leaving our district, we are extremely fortunate that she is leaving the school district in excellent shape. Ms. Bell’s visionary leadership will be greatly missed, however, she has mentored a great team that the board will be relying on going forward” said school board chair Edith Loring-Kuhanga.

Bell started work with the Greater Victoria School District in 1996 as the principal of James Bay Community School. Before this, Bell had a varied and successful career in the education field.

“It has been a privilege and honour working for the Greater Victoria School District over this past 19 years,” said Bell.  “I will greatly miss the many wonderful people and the significant relationships that I have forged while working in the school district.  I look forward to developing new relationships in my new role at Camosun College.”

In 2001, Bell was the district principal responsible for reconfiguring the Greater Victoria School District to implement the new K-5, 6-8, 9-12 structure. Since 2002 Bell has held senior leadership positions in the district.


“Sherri Bell is an outstanding and inspirational educator and administrator. Her professional achievements and experience will be a fabulous asset supporting the extraordinary work of the students, staff and faculty at Camosun and I congratulate Sherri on what really is a distinguished appointment,” said Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Andrew Weaver.
