Members of the Surrey Board of Education are led into the inaugural meeting held at the District Education Centre on Nov. 7. Below, board chairperson trustee Laurie Larsen and vice-chair trustee Terry Allen take their Oath of Office.
A boardroom full of Surrey city and provincial politicians or representatives, community and union leaders, and family and friends attended the formal inauguration of the Surrey Board of Education trustees at the Nov. 7 public board meeting. The board was inaugurated for the new 2018-2022 term, taking their Oath of Office and Oath of Allegiance.
While the October civic election brought much change to B.C. politics, the Surrey Board of Education remained consistent, with all seven experienced incumbent trustees re-elected for another four years.
Laurie Larsen, Terry Allen, Bob Holmes, Shawn Wilson, Gary Tymoschuk and Garry Thind were re-elected by Surrey voters, and Laurae McNally was re-elected by voters in White Rock.
At the Nov. 7 meeting, Larsen was again elected board chair by her fellow trustees, while Allen was re-elected as vice-chair.
The board oversees approximately 72,000 students of all ages who attend more than 125 Surrey and White Rock school facilities, as well as more than 11,000 employees.
Public board meetings are scheduled once a month at 7 p.m. at the District Education Centre (DEC), 14033 92 Ave. Meeting dates can be viewed here, as can agendas, minutes and videos.
