Welcome to the PVNC OECTA Website

Have a safe and restful summer!

Hello Members,

Thank you to Kelly McNeely for serving for 5 years as our Unit President. Kelly served us through historic times. She guided us through our first strike in 24 years and then through the Pandemic. She did this all with honour and grace. I would like to thank her on behalf of all PVNC teachers as we wish her a long and healthy retirement in Saskatchewan.

We are still waiting for the official start to the building of our new office. Materials are ready to go, but all the appropriate permits must be in order before we can begin. It has been a very long process and Covid did not help things.

I am looking forward to working with Andy and the rest of the Unit Executive. Unfortunately, we are coming into another school year with some uncertainty as we begin the two part process of negotiations (central then local). I am also looking forward to getting out to the schools and seeing everyone in person.

For now, please take time to spend with your families and friends as all teachers are most deserving of this well needed break after the last two tough years.

See you all in September!


Bart Scollard

PVNC Unit President
