Recognize our Students in June

There is no greater measure for the Public Schools Branch than the success of our students. Whether in academics, sport, music, drama, or assisting others, the dedicated efforts of our students to represent their schools, friends, families, and selves through their inspirational contributions is something we all can appreciate and be proud of.  We value the exceptional work of our students which contributes to the overall success of the PSB.  We want to acknowledge their wonderful achievements and say thank you!

The ‘Inspire’ award is one way the Public Schools Branch is using to recognize members of our educational community for the inspirational things they do to help us all experience success and make our schools great places to work and learn.

Each month we are encouraging the nomination of a specific group in our Public Schools Branch family. During the month of June, we will highlight the kind acts and work of our fantastic students. To nominate someone, simply take a minute or two to complete the on-line nomination form.  The criterion for nomination is simple – they just need to have inspired others.  Nominees will receive a small PSB recognition package and a note of thanks for contributing to the PSB community.

Over 500 ‘Inspire’ Awards have been delivered so far!  Thank you for taking time this month to nominate deserving candidates and for showing our students how much they are appreciated.
