Tea Time with the Bulldogs

We wanted to know what fellow Burke students thought about the announcement of our new Executive Principal, Mrs. Swinton. Here’s what they had to say:


I think having a female principal is a great way to influence girls and let them know that females can be great leaders, too. I think Mrs. Swinton will do a great job like she did at Wando. Overall, I see Burke going to a higher level with Mrs. Swinton as our principal.

I think she will do a fine job and will be a nice fit at Burke. She looks like a nice lady who is about her job.

I believe Mrs. Swinton will bring great opportunities to Burke. I’m excited to see what she has in store for us!

By what people are saying, she is a good lady and will do a great job. I don’t really know how to feel about it, but I hope she serves her role as principal.
