Join In The Celebration of Education Week 2019

As Education Week kicks off in Saskatchewan, it is an opportunity to honour our hardworking teachers, administrators and education support staff throughout the province and celebrate the success of students.

“As Education Minister, I have seen first-hand the extraordinary work of Saskatchewan teachers and staff in our schools,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “Their contributions each and every day to serve our more than 190,000 students are immeasurable and I am truly grateful for the passion and commitment put forth to help shape our next generation.”

This year, Education Week will be celebrated from October 20 to 26, with various events and activities taking place throughout the more than 770 schools in our province’s 27 school divisions.  The theme Working and Learning Together was chosen to acknowledge the important collaborative relationships that strengthen our education system.

The meaningful connections that form between education professionals and students, between schools and community members and Elders, and the collaboration that takes place between education partner organizations all serve to create an enriched learning environment for children, promoting student engagement and providing students with the foundations for success.

“From students and parents to teachers, principals, support staff and trustees, we appreciate the collaborative work that shapes our shared vision for public education in Saskatchewan,” Wyant said.  “To all those who support our students in their educational journey - thank you for everything you do.”

The Government of Saskatchewan encourages communities to join in the celebration of Education Week 2019 by recognizing the many people supporting our students and sharing the great things happening in our schools online using #SKedweek.
