Gordon Freight Excellence in Teaching Grant

The Gordon Freight Excellence in Teaching Grant was established by Mr. Freight at the time of his retirement after 40 years of service to Strathcona School for Boys and Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School. The grant provides funding for unique professional development opportunities that advance teaching expertise in individuals and the faculty as a whole. While the initial fund was seeded by Mr. Freight, the intention is to extend the funding through annual donations from within the STS community.

The objectives of this special grant are to:

  • Provide unique professional development opportunities to teachers on an individual and in-depth basis above and beyond STS professional development days and regular conferences and workshops.
  • Offer incentives to research and acquire new teaching techniques and/or develop resources to support curriculum development and enhance learning.
  • Enlighten colleagues by sharing new knowledge and expertise gained through the aforementioned activities.
  • Showcase teaching excellence and Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School in the broader community.

Grant Application Timing

STS faculty may apply for the grant and make their submission by November 1, February 1 or May 1 of each year.
