School trustees association proud of its role in helping to build province’s strong and equitable public system
The public education system in B.C. is blessed with exceptionally dedicated staff – in every school and district office in our vast province.
We share the honour of work that has great purpose – helping our students and youth.
Inspiring our collective work is the hope of building a strong, equitable public education system where our students thrive and realize their dreams.
The magic of the holiday season inspires reflection and renews hope.
As we look back on the many accomplishments in public education in 2013, I hope that everyone feels tremendously proud of our investment in children and our province’s future.
I hope that we remain inspired to continue to make students a priority; they deserve the best that we can provide them.
As President of the BC School Trustees Association, I am very grateful.
I am grateful for exceptional staff – from classroom teachers to support staff to district leaders. I am grateful that publicly-elected trustees in this province give each community a voice in local education decision-making.
Public education belongs to all of us.
Happy holiday wishes to you.
BC School Trustees Association
