Surrey school trustees thanked dozens of district employees for their 25 years of service at a special reception on May 30.
Surrey Board of Education trustees have honoured 177 school district employees who this year reached the 25-year milestone of supporting Surrey students.
The board held a Long Service Recognition event May 30, for employees hired between Sept. 2, 1993 and Sept. 1, 1994. The 74 honourees in attendance were treated to a reception, and were personally thanked by trustees and presented with a silver pen set.
Guests also enjoyed a performance by Grade 5 and 6 students from M.J. Norris Elementary, who comprise the school's "Orffestra." Led by teacher and director Susan Penner, the Orffestra was recently selected as a Top 10 finalist nationwide in the CBC Music Class competition. They performed the piece that got them to the finals – Mummer's Dance by Canada's Loreena McKennitt – at the Surrey Schools recognition event, as well as a piece from Jurassic Park, a movie that premiered 25 years ago.
