The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

Three area teach­ers and a school main­te­nance re­pair­man were rec­og­nized last month for their ded­i­ca­tion to their pro­fes­sion.

They were among 19 em­ploy­ees of the East­ern School District rec­og­nized with Awards of Ex­cel­lence dur­ing a cer­e­mony in St. John’s on Oct. 22.

The fol­low­ing re­ceived teach­ing ex­cel­lence awards:

• Deanne His­cock — mu­sic teacher, Amal­ga­mated Academy, Bay Roberts;

• Zoe Hamil­ton — phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion/Grade 4, Davis Ele­men­tary, Car­bon­ear;

• and Ed­ward Jarvis — so­cial stud­ies, Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate, Car­bon­ear.

Randy Dob­bin, a main­te­nance re­pair­man at St. Francis School in Har­bour Grace, re­ceived the sup­port staff ex­cel­lence award.

The Awards of Ex­cel­lence pro­gram was es­tab­lished in 2009 to rec­og­nize ad­min­is­tra­tors, teach­ers, stu­dent as­sis­tants, sup­port staff and man­age­rial em­ploy­ees who, through their daily work, find op­por­tu­ni­ties to lead, in­spire oth­ers, and con­trib­ute to stu­dent and district suc­cess.

The awards were handed out by Ford Rice, the district’s CEO and di­rec­tor of ed­u­ca­tion.

“ This pro­gram rec­og­nizes and reaf­firms all the great work that is be­ing done by so many ded­i­cated peo­ple in the East­ern School District,” Rice said. “ To have col­leagues, su­per­vi­sors and par­ents nom­i­nate in­di­vid­u­als for this award is an hon­our and tes­ta­ment to their hard work and ded­i­ca­tion.”

In to­tal, there were seven cat­e­gories: teach­ing ex­cel­lence, lead­er­ship ex­cel­lence, man­age­rial ser­vice, sup­port staff ex­cel­lence, ad­min­is­tra­tive sup­port, stu­dent sup­port and cur­ricu­lum sup­port.
