[1] Association & CCB Announcements / Annonces de la Société et du BCÉA


From Bonnie MacLachlan

The Grace Irwin Award, worth $500, is designed to reward a secondary school teacher of Latin, Ancient Greek or Classical Civilization who is seeking to upgrade existing abilities by engaging in different types of activities such as an accredited training course or travel to see artefacts/exhibits.

This year's winner is Matthew Skinner, a teacher at Humberside Collegiate, the same school where Grace Irwin taught for 38 years until her retirement in 1968. Mr. Skinner currently teaches Latin to 161 students and Classical Civilization to another 80. He intends to complete his teaching certification in Classical Studies and in History, and on his horizon is a planned trip to Crete.

My thanks to Maggie Rogow and Phil Snider, the members of this Awards Committee, for their selection of this most deserving teacher.

Respectfully submitted by

Bonnie MacLachlan
