October 15th was a great day for all overachievers at CKSS… It was the night of the annual academics awards evening.
The ceremony was long, but what else would you expect when 434 students were being honoured, not just for making the honour roll, but also for getting the highest marks in their respective classes. Also, for one one person in each grade, a gift card was presented to award them for the highest overall average.
The concert band performed “O Canada” at the beginning of the ceremony, and a piece called “Rivers” in between the distribution of grade 10 and 11 certificates, which detailed the personal achievements of each student.
Sadly, the awards and certificates did not come with secret access to an honour roll only study lounge, not that I’d tell you if they did. People can get kicked off the list for that!
Although they don’t come with any secret rooms, these awards let people know their hard work is appreciated, and truly does pay off, even if it’s just in the form of punch and snacks served in the hall after the ceremony.
