Teachers and other staff in Prince Edward Island schools spend countless hours building into the lives of our most precious resources. These individuals can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning! Home and School Associations in Prince Edward Island will join together the week of February 11 – 15 to honour and celebrate the people who work with our children on a daily basis to inspire and prepare them for life. 

 

Work focuses on children, teamwork. Nine P.E.I. schools to pilot health school food program in the fall.

The work of the P.E.I Home and School Federation in 2019 continues to focus on the importance of collaboration and advocacy in our work toward the well-being and education of all Island children.

                       

PEI Home and School Federation Supports AEDs in Island Schools

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: PEI Home and School Federation Supports AEDs in Island Schools
“AEDs in all Island schools policy of Federation”

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island CANADA- February 5th, 2019- The PEI Home and School Federation is expressing appreciation and support for the Province of Prince Edward Island’s recent announcement to place automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) in Island schools.

Making some changes. The beginning of each year is a great time to think about creating resolutions for 2019.

The new year is a time where many of us make resolutions to better things or improve ourselves. Resolutions are a powerful tool that local home and school associations use to drive change on a provincial level in P.E.I.’s education system. Home and schools are encouraged to consider issues of broad provincial importance to education, and to develop resolutions that recommend concrete changes to policy at the department or board level.

Healthy School Food, Resolutions, Awards, Staff Appreciation Week, Great Big Crunch....

Students have great ideas to improve food in Island schools - such as lowering the price of healthy meals, increasing the price of processed snacks, and providing homemade meals with good quality ingredients. They also think the students could be involved in meal planning and preparation.
