The Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division will mark Catholic Education Week on May 9-16, and will hold service awards for staff virtually as part of that week’s celebration.
The week will be part of a provincial proclamation, noted director of education Gwen Keith during Wednesday’s Holy Family board meeting, and each day during the week will see different activities held in the schools.
She added that this year, the board of trustees will not be involved in face-to-face activities as they are most years, due to the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place.
“We’re very excited about how the week will work,” said Keith.
There will be videos shown in the respective schools of the staff being honoured this year.
Two teachers will be retiring this year, Donna Berling and Natalie Regier, both from St. Michael School in Weyburn.
For the service awards, five-year awards will be given to Dean Loberg, Martina Veneziano, Jessica Bath, Roy Rains and Rhonda Sandquist.
Ten-year awards will be presented to Sean Galvin, Kaitlyne Graham, Sabrina Gulka, Brianna Rezansoff, Coline Smetaniuk, Shannon Culy and Trina Kopec.
Service awards for 15 years will go to Michelle Walkedene, Sarah Kot and Becky Tuchscherer.
Awards for 20 years of service are going to Carrie Horack, Kari Erb, Angela Giroux, and Jerome Sidloski (trustee), and a 30-year award is going to Lana Reich.
