May 2019 AGM CEE Report:
The year started with our committee celebrating World Teacher Day in October. In November we collected submissions for the Student Achievement Award on the topic of “Ahead by a Century”. The following winners went forward to Toronto to be presented provincially, Kyone Browne “Mr. Guardian” (BSS), Moira Wilson “The Devil Wears Pessimism: Societal Advancement Within the Past Century” (CHSS), Jasper Schell “A Broken Machine” (NHHS), Bailey MacIver “The Dead Sea” (CSS), and Dhanush Arul “A Journey Through Time - With Marjorie Carrie” (ESS).
This year there was one regional winner for the Student Achievement Award going to Bailey MacIver “The Dead Sea” (CSS).

There were 4 nominations for the Excellence in Education Teaching Award this year from four different schools. Each teacher will be celebrated at the Celebration Dinner held
on May 9th.

This year’s Education Week is May 6th to 10th and will be celebrated in each school. It has been a wonderful year full of great events and celebrations of our staff and students. We all hope to see such greatness next year!
