On Monday, November 9, 2015 The Learning Partnership will host the Champions of Public Education Saint John Tribute Lunch—an annual luncheon held in New Brunswick to raise funds to support programs in the province and showcase achievements of champions of public education in eastern Canada. The Champions of Public Education Tribute events celebrate and honour business, educational and community leaders for their exceptional commitment to young people and publicly funded education in Canada. The honourees are inducted into the Champions of Public Education Hall of Fame.

Celebrating 21 years of service in supporting excellence in public education, The Learning Partnership is a national charity dedicated to building stakeholder partnerships to support, promote and advance publicly funded education in Canada. We do this through five key deliverables - innovative student programs, executive leadership for educators, knowledge mobilization and policy, tribute celebrations of excellence and ongoing collaborations across Canada. Since 1993, more than 6.1 million students have participated in The Learning Partnership’s programs.

Sponsorship of this event will directly support The Learning Partnership’s programs in New Brunswick such as Welcome to Kindergarten™, Take Our Kids to Work™, Canada’s Outstanding Principals™, Turning Points, Entrepreneurial Adventure and Investigate! Invent! Innovate!.
