The Excellence in Public Education
Committee is pleased to announce the
recipients of this year’s Golden Star
Awards. School closures mid–March
affected the number of applications we
received but quality made up for quantity.

Congratulations:

 Tecumseh Elementary School in Vancouver

(Tilia Prior and Marion Collins, teachers)

Elementary School on Thetis Island

(Genny Redman, teacher) 

These teachers led intergenerational
programs that exemplify the rich
interactions and outcomes that can occur
when students and seniors interact.
When circumstances permit, the
Committee looks forward to presentation
events at Tecumseh and Thetis Island.
Kudos to all involved!
