EVENTS & HAPPENINGS

Education Week October 19 to 25, 2014

The Ministry of Education has declared the theme "Supporting and Celebrating Success" for this year's Education Week. Many amazing activities are being planned at many schools to celebrate this very special time. It is an opportunity to recognize the great work happening in all schools. Our success happens because of staff and students that are dedicated to education and doing their best.

It is Bus Driver Appreciation Day on Monday, October 20th. We say a huge THANK YOU to the many dedicated individuals we have driving our buses throughout the division. It is their care, attention and dedication to their job that makes it a safe environment for staff and students. Education doesn't just happen between 9:00 am to 3:30 pm and bus drivers play a huge role in allowing students to reach their full potential.

NEW: Check out the Ministry of Education Student First blog which highlights this year's Sea Stars Award winners Roger Herman (Yorkton bus driver) and Bob Thompson (Yorkton Bus Garage Supervisor).

Ministry Introduces Anti-Bullying Online Reporting Tool

On June 24, the Ministry of Education introduced a way in which students can anonymously report bullying incidences. This is in response to feedback released earlier in the school year with details described in "Saskatchewan's Action Plan to Address Bullying and Cyberbullying"; the press release is available here.

The letter explaining the new initiative is available by clicking here. More detailed information can be found on the Ministry's anti-bullying webpage; click here to access.

Click here for immediate access to the "I Am Stronger" website to report bullying.

One of our value statements is"WE BELONG" which reads: "A sense of belonging is a team effort where, as we continue to grow and change, the traditions of individuals and families who live, work and play in our communities are celebrated. A safe learning atmosphere where we connect and learn from one another will be shaped by those who work and study in our school division. Diversity is celebrated and welcomed in a caring environment."Work in the area of anti-bullying is a direct connection to our goal of providing a safe learning environment for staff and students.
