Education Week 2010
Education Week in Newfoundland and Labrador is scheduled Mar. 7-13. This year’s theme is ‘ My Place • Ma place’. Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association President Lily B. Cole explained “ The purpose of Education Week is to celebrate education and to encourage parents, community members and other educational stakeholders to become more involved with education, along with students and teachers.
“Our sub-themes allow students to look at their place within home, community, province, country and world, as well as tie the theme to Newfoundland and Labrador heritage and culture.”
The opening ceremonies for Education Week 2010 will take place on Monday, Mar. 8 at Templeton Academy in Meadows in the Bay of Islands on the west coast.
The NLTA sponsors and organizes Education Week in this province. It has been sponsoring Education Week since 1936. A provincial committee of teacher volunteers organizes the event.
