Education Week is a time to highlight the importance of public education and the amazing things that are happening in schools across the Lakeland Region.
The first Alberta School Week (Education Week) was held December 2–8, 1928. Its purpose then, as now, is to call attention to the importance of education and to show the public the good things happening in Alberta schools. This year’s theme is “Learning Is A Journey.”
In celebration of Education Week, the Greater St. Paul Alberta Teachers Association Local No. 25 is running a contest.
Brittney Berezan is the Event Coordinator.
“The ATA Local for Greater St. Paul area is gathering favorite memories and experiences with public education for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to a local business of your choice,” Berezan said.
Berezan says Education Week is an excellent opportunity to advocate for public education and to:
Illustrate the important role that schools play in communities;
assure taxpayers that public funds are being put to good use;
invite the public into classrooms for first-hand experiences;
highlight the partnership between teachers, parents and students;
demonstrate the important leadership role that the teaching profession plays in student learning;
and celebrate the contribution that all staff and volunteers make in the school.
