This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers. For that reason, attendance is expected to be high; more than 50 teachers from the Eastern Shores School Board have already applied for PIC funding!

One change this year is that there will not be any convention programs sent to schools. Instead, you can view the program online here. Hardcopies of the program will be given to participants at the Palais des Congrès during registration.

Also, please note that a number of pre-convention activities have been cancelled due to a lack of registrations. Please refer to QPAT’s website for an updated list of pre-convention activities and be sure to register early for remaining spaces.

Be sure not to miss this year’s keynote speaker, Rick Hanson. He’s an amazing athlete and an inspirational man who is the only person to circumnavigate the globe in a wheelchair!

Finally, your President, Ray Venables, looks forward to seeing many Eastern Shores teachers at the QPAT social on the evening of Thursday, November 27.
