Wayne Davies [BEd/91, PB DipEd/07]
Educator, philanthropist, rebel
Wayne DaviesGive any kid - at risk or not - the opportunity to do something meaningful for their community and chances are they will. Longtime educator Wayne Davies made that ‘something meaningful’ a trifecta of awesome opportunities no junior high student could resist: building custom guitars; recruiting rock stars, professional athletes, even former U.S. presidents to autograph them; then auctioning them off to support local charities. In 2010, a group of teachers at the École Selkirk Junior High School in Selkirk, Man., helped then-principal Wayne turn this rock ’n’ roll fantasy into reality with the founding of the Building on Students Success (B.O.S.S.) Guitar Works Program. Three short years later, in 2013, B.O.S.S. participants had built 325 fully playable guitars and raised more than $100,000 for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights as well as an additional $40,000 for various other charities. Wayne took a lesson on giving back to community and made it matter in the lives of his students - that’s the hallmark of a great educator.

Interlake School Division Early Dismissal
|As part of an ongoing effort to
improve achievement for our students, the Interlake School
will be implementing one hour early dismissals eight (8) times beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.
Early dismissals will provide the opportunity for regular teacher group meetings at the school level.
These meetings will focus on further development of instructional strategies to enhance student learning
in all our schools. On early dismissal days, students will be dismissed one hour earlier than the
school’s normal dismissal time. Early dismissals will be scheduled the
third Wednesday of each month, except in December and June.
