The prestigious award celebrates teachers across Canada who represent leadership and innovation in educating young people about Canada’s past. His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, presented the awards at Rideau Hall in Ottawa on Monday, November 28. This special event marked the 20th year of celebrating the excellence of Canada’s top history makers. Mr. Pounder and Ms. Buchanan are being recognized for their joint Grade 10 History Book Project in which students connect the history of their families to critical moments in the history of Canada. They compare stories their relatives tell with the official narrative, thus learning to appreciate multiple perspectives on the past. Visit to learn more about this wonderful accomplishment.
