On the final day of elementary school which was Friday June 26, 2015 (before summer break) at Ecole Corinthia Park, Leduc Optimist members Donna, Bob and Denise attended the final assembly.
One female student (Liv Sveinsson - Grade 6) and one male student (Marc James - Grade 6) received framed Certificates of Personal Achievement and Community Spirit with Cash Bursaries.
The listed criteria for each honoured student includes:
· Displays initiative, scholastic effort and academic
· Demonstrates respect for school rules and the rights
· Promotes friendship among all students and staff
· Shows a willingness to be involved in school or
community activities and events
