Education Week has always been about celebrating education and the importance of learning. The theme for 2020 is “20/20 Vision • Vision 20/20”. “20/20 Vision” is a term generally used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity of sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. This year’s theme does not necessarily mean you  have perfect vision. It simply means that vision animates, inspires and can transform purpose into action. The start of a new year, 2020, and another decade is a time to plan, dream and learn and envision all that you can be.Education Week can be an enriching experience for students, teachers and parents. All teachers are encouraged to continue to observe Education Week with their students. All students have much to contribute and would grow and learn from involvement in Education Week activities.


The four blocks symbolize the foundation of either a building or of learning. They represent both a solid foundation as well as the traditional blocks that most children are familiar with. Atop the blocks the chimney represents an arrow pointing to the future. This symbolizes the growth and the importance of education. Together the blocks, the chimney, the arrow, and all elements are representative of a solid foundation for education and the future that is provided by our teachers throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
