Correlieu Secondary School Mourns Passing of Vice Principal

Quesnel’s Correlieu Secondary School is grieving the loss of its vice principal.

“It’s a very difficult time for our school and our community with the passing of our vice principal, Brian Cullinane,” said Principal Dennis Hawkins-Bogle who learned of Cullinane’s passing on the day of it during spring break.

“It’s come as a shock to everyone and our community is certainly in mourning. As we go to open school on Monday after two weeks of spring break our school will certainly go into a mourning process, a grieving process because so many people have been impacted.”

Having very fond memories of Cullinane, Hawkins-Bogle said he worked with Cullinane for the last five years at Correlieu.

“Brian was a giant and a true servant leader. He inspired so many people. He inspired myself to strive to be a better educator,” Hawkins-Bogle said.

“He was a very kind and compassionate educator, and he will be very dearly missed.”

Hawkins-Bogle adds that when students heard about Cullinane’s passing they established a memorial.

“They brought flowers and candles, and sports memorabilia and they placed it outside of his window at the school,” he said.

“It’s there and it’s a very touching memorial that the students created and we’re very, very proud of our students for taking the initiative to create that in honor of their vice principal.”
