In recognition of what has been an unusual year in public education, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School Board has released a message for graduates from the entire Board of Trustees. The video is available on the District’s YouTube Channel and will be shared through its Twitter account (@NLESDCA) in the days to come.
“This year’s graduates have experienced a school year unlike any other,” said Goronwy Price, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “Our trustees usually have the privilege of sharing in proms and graduation celebrations with our school communities. However, our current public health challenges have provided us all with the unique opportunity to step outside our comfort zones and to take a new approach to connecting with each other and our communities.”
The video message features all 15 current members of the Board from all areas of the province celebrating the District’s 2020 graduates and their promising futures. It can be directly accessed through the following link: https://bit.ly/NLESBGrad2020
“Graduation 2020 may not look like the celebrations of the past, but it is the reality for more than 5,000 students throughout our District,” said Tony Stack, District CEO/Director of Education.”Our District staff joins the Board of Trustees, and our school communities, in offering our best wishes to all graduates who, together with their school administrators and teachers, have found new and innovative ways to share this milestone in their lives.”
