Tatla Lake Principal Awarded the 2023 Legion Golden Star Award
The BC Retired Teacher's Association and the Royal Canadian Legion Foundation have awarded this year's Legion Golden Star Award to Principal Kimberley Ikebuchi from Tatla Lake Elementary & Jr. Secondary School.
This award celebrates schools that help BC students connect with seniors through intergenerational programming. The Tatla Lake school program included egg dyeing, animal tracking, and weaving, amongst other activities. A representative from the BCRTA, Steve Bailey, noted that Principal Ikebuchi's work in the community was both impressive and "a great inspiration to members of the BC Retired Teacher's Association's Excellence in Public Education Committee."
An online award ceremony will be held in June to honour Principal Ikebuchi's work and to present a cheque, certificate and an engraved statuette.
