Education Week 2020 will take place from April 19 to 25. This year’s theme is: Student Well-Being = Success/Bienêtre des élèves = réussite. Education Week 2020 provides a special opportunity for the education community to acknowledge educators, school support staff and partners for their outstanding work relative to the Education Week theme.

An award ceremony recognizing the work of teachers, support staff, administrators and Early Childhood Educators in the pre-primary program will take place on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at École du Carrefour from 2 to 4 p.m.

This year’s theme aims to recognize educators, school support staff and education partners for their outstanding work in helping students learn and adopt healthy lifestyles that support their physical and mental growth and development. Helping students in their cognitive, socio-emotional and physical development are key to well-being, which supports success and achievement in school, and helps students be active members of their communities.

Education Week is a cooperative effort among public education stakeholders in Nova Scotia. Public relations/communication staff from the NSTU, and EECD, a director from Nova Scotia Federation of Home and School Associations, the executive director of the Fédération des parents acadiens de la Nouvelle-Écosse (FPANE), along with representatives from the Public School Administrators Association of Nova Scotia, Council on African Canadian Education, and Council of Mi’kmaq Education serve on the committee. Joining us this year for the first time is a representative from the Atlantic Provinces Special Education Authority (APSEA). The chair of the committee rotates between the partners. This year, Véronique Legault, from FPANE is chairing the committee.
