During May 1 to 5, Peel District School Board schools and worksites will host special activities and events to celebrate Education Week 2017—a time to showcase the wonderful accomplishments of staff, students and school communities. The theme for this year's week-long focus on education is We Inspire Hope.
In addition to inviting parents and community residents to visit their classrooms during the week, Peel schools are hosting open houses, plays/musicals, storytelling, environmental activities, awards assemblies, talent shows and much more.
One of the highlights of Education Week is the presentation of awards. More than 800 individuals will also be honoured throughout the week with Awards of Distinction for their contributions to their school or workplace. The Awards of Distinction reception for board office staff will take place on May 4 at 2 p.m. in the Mississauga room, HJA Brown Education Centre, located at 5650 Hurontario St., Mississauga.
The Awards of Excellence recipients are students, volunteers, staff and community partners who have made outstanding contributions to public education in Peel. The awards will be presented to 31 deserving recipients at the Showcase of Excellence ceremony on May 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the boardroom, HJA Brown Education Centre.
