Manulele Tausala Elementary School principal, Martha Sagapolutele shown with her award Certificate, after being named the “Principal of the Year” - school year 2017-2018. She was presented the award by Education Department director Dr. Ruth Matagi-Tofiga (second from right) during a brief ceremony last Friday at the ASDOE main office in Utulei.
Also in the photo (in no specific order, and who attended the ceremony) are ASDOE’s Assistant Director of Elementary, Program Director of Elementary, Vice Principal Manulele, Secretary Manulele and Principal of Ofu/Olosega Elementary School.
Matagi-Tofiga explained that it was last year that ASDOE started the “Principal of the Year Award” in which the Elementary and Secondary Divisions evaluate the Principals and make their recommendation — and this year, Sagapolutele received the award.
“The Department of Education seeks to recognize those principals who go beyond the day-to-day demands of their position to create an exceptional educational environment,” Matagi-Tofiga said last Friday after the award ceremony.
