well-received by the audience. The photos provide an added interest to
In addition, The Register also won two honourable mentions for
Surviving Home Assignment Pending Investigation, in the Opening Page or
Spread category (Spring 2012 Vol. 14 No.1) and
Mental Health Guide for Schools, in the Front Cover, Digital Imagery
category (Winter 2012 Vol. 14 No. 4).
"We are extremely honoured to be recognized for our magazine's work by
this very prestigious organization. The Gold award is particularly
exciting for us, as these awards are usually given to much larger
professional journals," said Bob Pratt, President of the Ontario
Principals' Council. "This is another example of the high quality
publication we produce that provides thought provoking articles and
resources for principals and vice-principals across the province."
The Register is published three times per year by the Ontario Principals' Council, a
voluntary professional association representing over 5,000 principals
and vice-principals in Ontario's public elementary and secondary
schools. Established in 1998, the OPC advocates on behalf of public
education and provides professional supports to its Members.
