Student Awards and Recognition

At our school we have many positive achievements to celebrate. Visit this page to learn what great things our students are up to.

Awards Assembly

Each semester an Awards Assembly is held to acknowledge the academic excellence achieved by our students.  Parents and staff gather to recognize those students who have earned honours standing which is an overall average mark of at least 80% in their courses.  We also recongize subject specific excellence at this assembly.  The highest performers in each subject receive a certificate of achievement.  The Awards Assembly concludes with the Proficiency Awards which are given to the students achieving the highest overall average in their grade level.


Student of the Month

Each month one student is recognized for demonstrating academic excellence as a result of improved effort.  The winner of this award has his/her portrait taken and it is displayed in the main office for one month. Along with this portrait, the student receives an award certificate and school wide recognition.


Principal's Reception

Throughout the school year students are recognized at the Principal's Reception for demonstrating outstanding citizenships skills in the areas of: Responsibility, Empathy, Safety, Pride, Equity, Community and/or Truth.


Athletic Assembly

In June, the annual Athletic Assembly is held. At this year-end celebration, excellence in athletics is recognized.  The Most Valuable Player and The Most Improved Player awards are given for each school team.  The assembly culminates with honouring our Male and Female Athletes of the Year.  These recipients have demonstrated skill, leadership and commitment to the teams they participated on.  Along with a plaque, the Athletes of the Year have their portrait displayed on the Athletic Wall of Fame in the gym hallway.



At our annual Commencement ceremony the achievements of our graduating students are recognized with the presentation of diplomas, certificates and subject awards.  In addition to our Subject Awards a number of Community, School Board and Staff Awards are presented to selected graduates.
