In the past year, I have witnessed or taken part in many conversations about education and schooling in Prince Edward Island- from one end of the island to the other. These conversations sent a strong and clear message that the education of our young people is a No. 1 priority for Islanders.
Even during times of change, it is critical that childrens’ learning continues to be the primary focus of all the players in our education system.
In recognition of the excellent work of students, the P.E.I. Home and School Federation awards prizes in two provincial fairs. This years’ winners of the Family Heritage Fair Prize at the P.E.I. Heritage Fair are: “Yeo Shipbuilders” by Will Yeo (L.M. Montgomery Elementary, grade 5) and “The Outlaws in my Lineage” by Nicolas Dickieson (Immanuel Christian School, grade 7).
