On Monday, October 24, 2022, Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board (PVNCCDSB) won an Award of Distinction for the Everyday Hero Staff Recognition Program during the 2022 BRAVO! Awards Gala hosted by the Canadian Association of Communicators in Education (CACE).

‘We are thrilled and honored to receive this recognition from the Canadian Association of Communicators in Education,” said Galen Eagle, Manager of Communications. “Our communications department is responsible for providing public relations support for all of our schools and the various district departments to ensure our various stakeholders remain informed of important news regarding PVNCCDSB.”

The Everyday Hero Staff Recognition Program was developed as a strategic communication project to acknowledge and celebrate the efforts of a broad range of school-board staff and to help further the “Valuing Relationships” strategic priority as set out in the Board’s 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.

“We’re fortunate to have a communications team to provide effective communication strategies to stakeholders across the district. Families and staff are the beneficiaries of these efforts,” says Joan Carragher, Director of Education. “It’s important to increase awareness and understanding of the critical management role played by professional communicators.”

The CACE BRAVO! Awards, presented by SchoolBundle, are the only Canada-wide awards program specifically designed to recognize excellence in school board communications. CACE recognizes and honours exemplary work in all aspects of school public relations, communications, marketing and engagement through the BRAVO! Awards Program each year.
