The Work2Wellness (W2W) Milestone Celebration 2018 held June 20th at the Florence Filberg Centre brought together more than 140 district employees for an evening of mingling. But the occasion was more than just time away from work at the end of yet another busy school year. This annual event was to recognize staff who were celebrating a significant career milestone or marking their retirement.
In total, 286 members of the district team were celebrated of which 253 employees with 20 to 43 years of dedicated service were acknowledged and 33 retirees were honoured.
The success of Comox Valley Schools is a direct result of the efforts and commitment of our hard working staff members – teachers, administrators, support staff, and district leadership and management team. It is truly a privilege for our organization to come together as one to celebrate the work of those who make a difference in the lives of our students, shaping their future and supporting their educational journey.
A special thank you to the W2W organizing committee including the Comox Valley Schools' Human Resources Team, CV Principals and Vice Principals Association, Comox District Teachers Association, and CUPE Local 439. This has been the second celebration event of the school year brilliantly organized and successfully executed by this committee, both of which has attracted a large employee turnout.
