Our GVSD School Board participated in two days of learning at the Manitoba School Boards Association Fall General Meeting on December 1 & 2,2022. School board members learnt what it means to be a trustee and had an opportunity to listen to updates on initiatives from the Department of Education.
The GVSD Board held its reorganization meeting on November 8, 2022. The new GVSD School Board consists of four incumbent trustees, as well as five newly elected trustees. GVSD would like to congratulate Leah Klassen on being elected by the Board to the position of Board Chair. GVSD would also like to congratulate John Klassen on being elected to the position of Vice-Chair. Both Leah and John have served our Board and our division with dedication and passion, and we wish them much success as they begin working in their new roles.
Thank you to outgoing trustees Laurie Dyck, Barb Heide, Tash Olfert, Garry Bueckert and Jake Fehr for your service to the GVSD community!
