Dear St. Francis Xavier School parents & guardians,

We are pleased to inform you that we have concluded our selection process and Mr. Ryan Irving has been appointed as principal of St. Francis Xavier School beginning in the 2021-2022 school year. Mr. Irving currently teaches grade 3/4 at Mother Teresa School. Before coming to MHCBE he taught various elementary grade levels at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Schools in Brooks.

Ryan is a very devout Catholic who has run a Men’s Bible study group and acted as faith leader for his school. He is a part of the Hospitality Committee at Holy Family Parish where he attends with his wife and two young children. Sports are a great passion of Ryan’s as he has participated in them throughout his life. He has also held various coaching roles and worked for Sportplay, a multi-sport program for kids in Toronto. Ryan likes to stay inspired by St. Francis Xavier himself and aims to “be great in small things”.
