A group of students from the Dual Support and General Learning Programs are currently enjoying a 10 day trip to England (photo: Tigers enjoying a sunny afternoon at Buckingham Palace). According to early reports from the trip supervisors, this excursion in proving to be a life altering experience for the participants. Students are learning not only to appreciate being immersed in a different culture, but also to deal with the many challenges of foreign travel. For some of the students, this is the culminating point of a multi-year involvement with the Duke of Edinburgh Awards program. Woodroffe HS remains committed to providing rich learning opportunities to all students and we thank all our partners who have helped transform this dream into reality.
Congratulations to Woodroffe's Cappies Critics. Tigers earned a nomination in the best critics team for the 2013 Cappies. In addition, the following students are in the running for best female critic: Haley Asbil, Emma Rae and Miriam Saslove. The team will attend the June 2nd Cappies Gala at the NAC to celebrate excellence in the performing arts. Good luck to our nonimees.
During first semester our Grade 11 French Immersion students had the opportunity to participate in a National Essay Contest, organized by the French for the Future organization. This year's topic was "What can we do, as citizens, to preserve bilingualism in Canada?" and the contest was open to students in grades 10 to 12 across Canada. Many of our Tigers took advantage of this fantastic occasion and worked hard on 750 word essays, hoping to win a scholarship. We are pleased to announce that the hard work paid off! Four of our students were awarded scholarships to the University of Ottawa. Danielle Eberley, Melissa Cote and Julian Parker each received a $1000 scholarship and Sierra Gratwohl received a $4000 scholarship! Well done tigers! Félicitations les tigres!
