Registration is now open for the 2019 LCEEQ Annual Conference, Well-Being - Being Well. Each Board and Association represented at the LCEEQ table has a designated number of places at the Conference, so if you are interested in attending you must contact your Board/Association for authorization. Generally, it is the Pedagogical/Educational Services Department that can provide you access. Do not delay as the spaces will fill up very quickly.
There are numerous signs that mark the arrival of Spring. For the last several years the annual Leadership for School Improvement Workshop has proven to be one of these in the realm of professional development. A new group of administrators, and those aspiring to the position, started the process in April and will complete the six-day package in August.

Donald Kerr is a Physical and Health Education teacher at Massey-Vanier High School in the Eastern Townships. He has taught at the school for eleven years. Donald enthusiastically states, “Teaching Physical Education and coaching sports teams remain my passion. I've coached basketball, hockey, golf, soccer, and softball over the years and am happy to be involved with such a great organization. ‘Nothing is more important than health’ is my slogan. I am an avid promoter of physical activity and the benefits it can bring to everyone; from mental and physical health to academic success. Physical activity is the greatest pharmaceutical out there and should be incorporated daily across every School Board and school to encourage student success”.
This attitude certainly is positive as LCEEQ focuses on wellness with the theme of the Annual Conference in February 2019 being Well Being – Being Well!
