Mother Teresa Catholic School in Halkirk hosted its annual awards ceremony last Tuesday on a wintry October evening.
The achievements of all students from the 2011-12 school year were recognized and plaques were presented in honour of those achievements.
“It’s a traditional awards night, which the community embraces,” said school principal Veronica Pinkoski.
The top Grade 9 female academic award was presented to Jillian Schaffner, while the top male academic winner was Seth Neufeld.
The Mary Ann Teaker Memorial Award for achievement in the arts went to Haley Grice and Cale Neufeld.
Top junior high athlete awards went to Jacey Gamroth and Lief Neufeld.
Seth Neufeld garnered his second award of the evening by capturing the Sam Dragnuk citizenship award.
Simon Muncy was the sole winner of the perfect attendance award.
Owen Schauer earned the most improved reading award.
After the presentation of awards, a short slide show of Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People was presented.
The program concluded with a commendable performance by the school choir, under the direction of vice-principal Lisa Gallon.
