A teacher and a student were presented with awards by the Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario at the school board's June 25 meeting.
One of the awards was presented to Tasia Lachapelle, a student at École St-Étienne.
The student “displays great pride towards her language and her faith and an exceptional commitment to her school through her leadership as student council president,” a press release from CSCNO said.
“Her contributions to her schools’ charity efforts as well as her community involvement, having participated in the recent Kanata 1534 production and contributing numerous volunteer hours, deem her a model student within her school and community.”
The other award was presented to École Ste-Thérèse teacher Lise Poulin.
The teacher “is highly committed to school activities and demonstrates with integrity her sense of Catholic and Francophone pride and belonging,” the press release said.
“Her strong belief and commitment to developing student leadership and contributing to student success sees her lead numerous clubs and organize various sports and extracurricular activities. Her unconditional support to students and fellow staff is greatly appreciated at her school.”
“We extend a great deal of gratitude to all members of our school community for their commitment and their contributions to the well-being and advancement of their school and of the CSCNO,” said CSCNO president André Bidal.
“This year, the Conseil scolaire takes great pride in recognizing Tasia Lachapelle and Lise Poulin for their outstanding contributions to French-language Catholic education.”
