REGINA – The Saskatchewan School Boards Association (SSBA) thanked outgoing Minister of Education Bronwyn Eyre and congratulated and welcomed incoming Deputy Premier and Minister of Education Gordon Wyant, following the provincial cabinet shuffle that was recently announced.
“We thank Minister Eyre for her service,” said Dr. Shawn Davidson, SSBA President. “We wish her all the best in her new role as Minister of Energy and Resources and Minister responsible for SaskWater and SaskEnergy.”
Davidson also congratulated and welcomed incoming Minister Wyant, who is also Deputy Premier. Davidson noted Wyant’s past service to the education sector in Saskatchewan as a locally elected school board trustee.
“We look forward to working with Minister Wyant to advance the important efforts happening in our sector to support our province’s students,” said Davidson. “The SSBA and its member boards believe all students should have the resources they need to succeed and achieve, regardless of where they live in the province or their personal circumstances. Education is an investment in our future.”
School boards have been calling for restored and renewed investment in education and want the voices of the families and communities they represent to be heard and considered by the government.
The new minister and Premier Scott Moe have been invited to meet with partners from across the education sector in the near future. Davidson said he hopes they will take the opportunity to engage and establish relationships.
