Extra Mile Award

The PEI Home and School Federation Extra Mile Award commenced in the 2004 - 2005 school year. This award recognizes teachers and/or staff personnel (i.e. administrative assistants, EAs, custodians, etc.), who exemplify going the extra mile - over and above the call of duty. Two recipients will be announced and a presentation made at their respective schools during Teacher / Staff Appreciation Week.

  2. The selection committee consists of at least three members of the PEIHSF Board and Home and School Association representatives, where necessary.
  3. Submit nomination forms to the PEIHSF office.
  4. Nominations are to be submitted by a local Home and School Association or an individual member.
  5. Include support letters from your school community such as school principal, teachers, other school staff, parents and students.

Describe the nominee’s contribution in the following areas:

  1. Details of volunteer service to Island students and/or youth
  2. Demonstrated caring attitude towards Island students and youth
  3. Evidence of going the extra mile in assisting students to achieve academically, socially and/or in other areas of school life
