Premier's Awards for Excellence in Education

Monday, June 4, 2018

The K-12 Presidents Council met May 1–3 in Burnaby. CUPE BC President Paul Faoro and Secretary-Treasurer Trevor Davies attended. Paul Faoro brought greetings from CUPE BC and announced that the Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education will, for the first time, have a category for “Outstanding Support.”

This category is open to support staff currently working in BC’s K-12 public school system (i.e. bus drivers, crossing guards, student supervisors, educational assistants, aboriginal support workers, custodians, maintenance, and clerical). The Premier’s Award is an opportunity for government to recognize “the enormous contribution of education professionals who go above and beyond to make life better for students in BC”.

Nominate your favourite CUPE K-12 member in the category of Outstanding Support on the BC Government web site at:

Nominations opened on April 23 and close on June 18. You can download a poster here
