Niverville High School gets new principal

Beginning in September, the Niverville High School (NHS) will have a new face behind the principal’s desk. Paul Grosskopf has been appointed to the position, replacing Kimberley Funk.

Grosskopf is also a new staff member to the Hanover School Division (HSD). He comes to Niverville directly from his previous position as vice-principal and instructional coach at École St. Adolphe, a dual track French immersion school.

Prior to 2022, Grosskopf served as acting principal at Arborgate School in La Broquerie for five years. His teaching experience includes seven years at the same school where he taught Grades 3/4 and Grades 7/8. He was also a physical education instructor.

Grosskopf received his bachelors of education from the University of Manitoba in 2015 and is currently enrolled in the university’s postbaccalaureate program in educational administration.
