Derek Logan

Kingsway College School
Head of School
Derek Logan completed a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History (McMaster University), a Master of Arts in War Studies (University of London); and a Bachelor of Education (University of Toronto). He is a graduate from the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) Leadership Institute (2004). Derek began his teaching career at Turnbull School in Ottawa, and has been an educator and administrator at Kingsway College School in Etobicoke (just outside of Toronto) since September 1999. His most recent role as Head of School began in December 2007.

Derek taught a module at the CAIS Summer Leadership Institute entitled, Encouraging Dialogue: Mental Health and Our Schools. In January 2012, his school held an information night on mental health that helped to change the dialogue for many individuals in his school community on this topic. The organization of that event and what happened following was the most rewarding event that he has been involved in during his twenty plus years in education. While he sees building new facilities, raising money for his school, and high enrollment as terrific accomplishments, in his words, “helping children and their families stare down the stigma of a mental health diagnosis is something truly rewarding.”

Derek has spoken about mental health at various conferences, workshops and schools. Derek has been happily married to Heather for the past 25 years. His daughter, Alyssa, is finishing up her undergraduate degree at Guelph University, and his son, Brandon, who is in his second year at McMaster University.
