A World of Learning for Every Student
October 14-20, 2018 is Education Week in Saskatchewan. For more than 30 years, Saskatchewan has dedicated one full week every year to celebrate student success and recognize the dedication and commitment of education professionals across the province.
This year’s Education Week theme – A World of Learning for Every Student – recognizes the multiple pathways to learning being made available to our students. It also highlights the important roles our educators play each and every day in broadening the horizons and enriching the lives of Saskatchewan students.
Putting the Student First
In our Saskatchewan Plan for Growth – our government’s vision for 2020 and beyond – two of our key goals are to lead the country in Grade 12 graduation rates and to reduce the difference in graduation rates between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students by 50 per cent. Our schools and education partners have been working hard to achieve these targets and give all of our students the chance to succeed.
Our government is putting the students first by investing in our schools and providing them with access to modern, safe and innovative learning environments that will help them learn and grow in this changing world. We take pride in the achievements of our students, parents and educational professionals, and continue to improve and build a positive future because a great education helps our children become whatever they want to be and prepares them for whatever they might face.
