2021-2022 Awards Assembly

Tihmily Li, Communications Officer
All of Greenwood gathered together in the gym for our Awards Assembly on Wednesday, June 15. At the assembly, we celebrated the achievements and accomplishments of the award recipients for Arts, Athletics and Leader by Example. The bronze and silver level Duke of Edinburgh’s Award recipients also received recognition during the assembly.

Ms. Bruce began the assembly noting that success is not only measured by crossing the finish line first or earning a great mark. Success also comprises smaller moments of commitment and practice that help shape each of our individual journeys. While the award recipients have contributed greatly both in and outside of the classroom throughout the school year, Ms. Bruce also paid tribute to the dedication and perserverance of all Greenwood students despite all the additional challenges posed by COVID-19. 

The students honoured at the Awards Assembly have all pushed their boundaries in and out of the classroom this year - whether by working behind the scenes on a school play, volunteering on a committee or putting in hard work on the field. And in doing so, they have made an incredibly positive impact on our community.

We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
