This internship examined the experiences encountered during a 10-week participant-observation of one junior high school assistant principal. During this period of time the roles and responsibilities of the assistant principal in the Newfoundland context were explored. Other goals of the internship were to understand the factors that shape the assistant principal's role and how this role might develop in the future. The main purpose however was to gain an understanding of leadership from the assistant principal's perspective, which would help in the development of the requisite leadership skills.
