Building our Future by Learning Together
October 15-21, 2017 is Education Week in Saskatchewan, a time to celebrate student success and recognize our dedicated education professionals across this great province.
This year’s theme: Building our Future by Learning Together, highlights the role of education in building our future both as individuals and as a province. It also emphasizes importance of a collaborative and inclusive approach to learning.
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.
Building our Future by Learning Together reminds us that we should take pride in the achievements of our students, parents and educational professionals, while continuing 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.
