Learning is a Journey: Celebrate Education Week, April 27 - May 1, 2020

April 27, 2020

According to the Alberta Teachers' Association (ATA) website, the first Alberta School Week (Education Week) was held December 2-8, 1928. Its purpose then, as now, is to provide all Albertans with an opportunity to highlight the important role education plays in shaping the future of our province.

Learning is a Journey
Every three years, the ATA, in collaboration with Alberta Education, chooses a theme to help schools and locals plan activities that send consistent messages supporting public education to the community. The theme for 2017-2020 is "Learning is a Journey". 

It's a great time to celebrate teachers' proud legacy in public education and work toward an inspired future that includes the following:

  • Optimal learning conditions for every child
  • Creative and innovative learning programs
  • Students who enjoy learning and who achieve their learning goals
  • Parents and communities that are involved and supportive of learning
  • School leaders who are also teachers
  • A well-thought out curriculum delivered by well-prepared professionals
  • Opportunities for teachers to continue developing their skills as professionals
