Hi, I'm Capucine


Beliefs to Action

Capucine believes that education is a fundamental right which includes the right to attend school and to have education delivered to the student in a way that allows them the opportunity to reach their full potential.


Capucine supports the authority of parents over the education of their children. She believes elected politicians and board trustees should be transparent and accountable to the public.Transparency, collaboration and accountability are key to getting students back on track. 

As a mother of an adult daughter with a learning disability, she knows what it's like to fight for her child's needs. With grace and determination she ensured her daughter was not marginalized nor bullied. It is every parents desire for their child to reach their full potential.
