Resolutions are about change

Do you see a need for change in PEI’s education system? The PEI Home and School Federation supports equal opportunity for all students in PEI’s education system and promotes this by passing pertinent resolutions at Annual General Meetings and then forwarding these to decision-makers who can make changes for the benefit of all island students. Consider important issues that pertain to education, safety, health, and total well-being. Members are encouraged to call the Federation office for assistance and refer to our writing and presenting resolutions guide. You can review the Guide and Federation resolutions at: https://peihsf.ca/resolutions/  2023 resolutions are due in the Federation office by Tues. Jan. 31.
