About Me

Hello!  My name is Desmond Nolan and I am the Principal here at Edwin Parr Composite School.  I am very excited to be a part of the New Edwin Parr School and team.

This is my sixteenth year working for Aspen View Public schools.  For the first 10 years of my career I worked at Rochester School as a classroom teacher and principal.  Then I transferred to Thorhild Central School for two years as the Assistant Principal.    I grew up in the community of Vegreville where our family was very involved in hockey and outdoor activities.  I have 6 brothers who I see on a regular basis as we are all still very close.  

After graduating high school, I attended the University of Alberta where I received my degree in Education.  I have a professional diploma in Inclusive Education from the University of Calgary and am currently enrolled at the University of Saskatchewan in an Indigenous Land Based master’s program.  I have two handsome boys, Sawyer 8 and Denver 6.   We currently live in the town of Athabasca where we are able to live the outdoorsy lifestyle that we enjoy.  

I look forward to getting to know all our new students, parents and community members that make this community the wonderful, welcoming place that it is.
