Each year on the third Wednesday of October, Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board recognizes Educational Assistant Day. This year it falls on Wednesday, October 16, 2013.
Educational assistants perform an important role in our schools and are a vital part of supporting students to reach high levels of achievement. They are dedicated professionals who work in diverse roles and settings.
Each day, educational assistants interact with students who have a wide range of abilities. EAs assist each student to reach his or her full potential. Educational assistants demonstrate caring, compassion and patience, and draw on a wide range of skills and experience to fulfill their roles.
