This year's Friends of the Education Award for Zone one is a special one for Grande Prairie. The Grande Prairie Public School Division, Peace Wapiti Public School Division and Grande Prairie & District Catholic Schools are thrilled to have presented the annual Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) Friends of Education Award presentation to the 3D Children's Charity on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020, during the Zone One Friends of Education and Edwin Parr Awards Banquet held in Peace River. GPPSD Trustee Andre Ouellette presented the award on behalf of the three boards to Darren Foley, Chair of the 3D Children's Charity.
The shared nomination was an opportunity for the 3 School Boards to express their gratitude and publicly acknowledge the significant impact the 3D Children's Charity has made to support students in need of medical treatment in our community.
The annual Friends of Education Award presentation provides an opportunity for each Zone one school division to acknowledge local organizations for their contributions to education.
