Rita Gravina and Cathie Pfaff, Award Recipients

History teachers win Governor General’s Award

BSS is proud to announce that two of our teachers, Rita Gravina and Cathie Pfaff, have received the 2016 Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Teaching. The pair created a special project for Grade 12 History students with the aim of exploring the role of Canadian women in the First World War. The students chose a BSS alumna to research and, working from primary documents in the school’s archives and online archival sources, they created short films to present their wartime experiences. Also instrumental to the project’s creation was BSS archivist Sue Dutton, whose expertise and knowledge of the school’s archives made the project possible. Read more on Cathie and Rita’s award on the Canada History website and in a recent Town Crier article. 

We are thrilled to see our teachers recognized for the brilliant work they do in encouraging students to immerse themselves in Canadian history and discover the unsung heroes of the First World War. Congratulations to Rita, Cathie and Sue for going above and beyond with this extraordinary project. View Canada’s History short video featuring Cathie and Rita. For an overview of our own history, see our online heritage exhibit.
