Murray Skeavington and Blaine Veitch
Blaine Veitch is retiring as Superintendent of Flin Flon School Division on July 31st. Last night was his last School Board meeting and he thanked the Board for all their support over the years. He said they were talking last night and he thinks there’s about 360 Board meetings over the years and lots of memories and lots of good discussions, some challenges and he thinks they’ve tried to keep focused on kids and learning and keeping schools in the forefront so he’s pleased the Division is in a good place and he knows they’ll go forward and do the right thing. He adds it’s been a good career and he’s proud to have served the Division for this long.
Veitch worked for the School Division for 35 years, 14 of those as Superintendent. He plans to spend time with his family, doing some traveling and will work part time as the Director of Education for Creighton School Division. Board Chair Murray Skeavington presented Veitch with travel mugs on behalf of the Board for he and his wife to use in their travels. In his report Veitch reminded parents and students schools open for the 2016-17 year September 6th with classes starting on the 7th.
