Deryn Lavell is a highly respected educational leader with over 30 years experience in Canada and internationally. With a Master of Educational Administration and Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria, B.C., Ms. Lavell’s career has taken her from the classrooms of Alert Bay, Prince Rupert and Victoria, B.C., to increasingly senior roles in the United Arab Emirates and Canada. Currently she is Head of School at The Bishop Strachan School, BSS, soon to celebrate its 150th anniversary alongside Canada, making it this country’s oldest day and boarding school for girls. She is a powerful advocate for equality and empowering girls with the confidence they need to thrive in an increasingly complex world, a philosophy that has distinguished her leadership at BSS.
