The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed February 11-17, 2018 as Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week in the province.
“This week is an opportunity for Saskatchewan residents to recognize and celebrate our teachers and school staff,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said. “Education professionals in our province work tirelessly to educate and inspire students to reach their full potential and engage in lifelong learning.”
Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week is acknowledged annually across Canada to highlight the invaluable work of education professionals in our schools. This year, the Saskatchewan Association of School Councils (SASC) has chosen the theme Inspiration Through Learning.
“Teachers and staff inspire and motivate learners when they provide students with opportunities to understand, develop and practice positive attitudes and actions that will result in the achievements of their goals and dreams,” SASC Director Joy Bastness said. “They inspire new understanding and skills, initiate new experiences, spark students’ interest and enthusiasm, while infusing learning with life and a desire to learn.”
This marks the 31st year that Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week will be celebrated in Saskatchewan.
