Representing over 1200 permanent & occasional teachers servicing 36 schools across 4 counties – we are the Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Clarington unit of OECTA.
Well it is hard to believe that March Break is over and Easter is fast approaching. I know in my teaching career the time after the March Break just flies by and this year will be no exception. So hang on!
18 members travelled to the AGM and participated in the 74th AGM doing PVNC proud. In all my years attending the AGM, this is the first time that all resolutions made it to the floor in one manner or another. The resolutions were either withdrawn, moved to have a committee study, approved or denied. The Association is gearing up to have the 75th AGM celebrations in Ottawa next year and the books are clear to start fresh.
Many items are still in the works for this year locally with visits to the schools we haven’t seen yet, to some re-visits to schools- who need a strong OECTA presence for support, the Retirement Workshop at the end of this week, the Rep lunch in April at the Mill in Cobourg, the PVNC AGM at Baxter Creek May 23rd, the OECTA Golf tournament May 26, the Provincial Government Election (remember to vote), the OECTA Retirement dinner June 15th, and all the other meetings and tasks scheduled to name a few.
Enjoy the sunshine that is stretching further in our days and take time for yourself to enjoy the small stuff that surfaces daily and appreciate our gifts we offer every day to our students, staff and family!
