Congrats to George Jay Elementary!

A huge congratulations from our PAC to George Jay Elementary, which has three new reasons to celebrate. The George Jay PAC, led by President Kate Wallace, was the recipient of the Inspirational PAC Award in a ceremony at last night's Victoria Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils meeting held at Tillicum Elementary. The Gail Edwards Memorial Award, which recognizes a parent volunteer in the district went to Beth Threlfall, also of the George Jay PAC. Meanwhile, the Parents Choice Award went to George Jay teacher, Karen Higginbotham. What a night for one of our sister schools! In fact, Wallace IS the sister of our very own PAC President, Mercedes Calvert.

Congratulations to all the winners! For more information about the VCPAC awards, visit
