Outstanding academics

​WSD’s Board of Trustees honoured the academic achievements of some of the Class of 2016’s most outstanding young students.

The recent graduates attended the special Dec. 12 board meeting along with family and administration from their respective high schools. The board heard the academic and civic accomplishments of each student before presenting them with book gift certificates.

The Governor General’s Medal is awarded to the student who achieves the highest academic standing in the graduating class of their secondary school; the WSD Board Post Secondary Scholarships provide $1,000 to a senior student to further their post-secondary education. The two awards are considered the highest honours a WSD graduating student can achieve.
