Public Schools Foundation is very proud to sponsor the Grade 8 Award of
Excellence, inspired by Walter Poshtar. Walter Poshtar was a Teacher,
Vice Principal and Principal for the Fort William Board of Education
mainly at the Intermediate level. Mr. Poshtar saw Grade 8 students as
vital, inquisitive, caring, and above all, involved in life itself. The
key requirements of the Grade 8 Poshtar Award: achievement and
citizenship are integral components of this award.
Studies prove that students are more
successful in school when they are supported by their
parents and guardians. Our annual Grade 8 Award of
Excellence celebration is a testament to the dedication of
the parents and guardians of the award recipients. Thank
you, families and extended families, for your ongoing
support and encouragement of your child's education now and
into the future.
