Prairie Rose School Division is kicking off a jam-packed week of activities to celebrate Education Week in Alberta.

“Education Week is really important in our world,” says Prairie Rose communications co-ordinator Angela Baron. “It’s the one week of the year that we get to promote anything and everything to do with education.”

This year’s theme for Education Week across the province is “Learning is a Journey,” which, according to the Alberta Education website, is about highlighting “the role education plays in preparing students to pursue their career interests in a diversified economy, while also ensuring they experience the joy of learning while at school.”

Some highlights of the week in PRSD include a Literacy Showcase at Margaret Wooding School in Redcliff Thursday, the official ribbon-cutting to open Irvine’s new playground and “Hats on for Mental Health” celebration at all PRSD schools, both on Wednesday.

Baron encourages local parents to check out their schools’ websites to see other events.

“We would encourage parents to come and take part in some of their school’s events … There are a lot of fun things going on this week in our schools.”
