Poster-GoldenStar2The BCRTA believes that within every community there is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom among seniors that should be used to enhance the learning experience of students at every grade level, right from Kindergarten through Grade 12. The BCRTA Golden Star Awards were established to recognize and reward programs in the BC public school system that have as the salient feature the interaction of students with seniors.


In a new partnership with the Royal Canadian Legion, BC Yukon Command Foundation, a 6th Golden Star Award will be presented to a BC public school. This award will recognize the interaction of BC students and seniors and/or Veterans in intergenerational projects focusing on remembrance and patriotism.
