Awards Assembly 2024

In the lead-up to Celebration Day, one of Greenwood’s traditions is an Awards Assembly held on the last day of school. Community members are recognized for their achievements in Arts, Outdoor Education, Athletics, school leadership and Service Learning. The bronze and silver level Duke of Edinburgh’s Award recipients were also recognized at the assembly as well as the Greenest House at Greenwood.

Ms. Bruce began the assembly with a thoughtful address about the impact and contributions of each individual at Greenwood. The dedication and commitment to excellence that the Greenwood community has shown in the 2023-2024 school year has made this year a roaring success. 

Students and staff honoured at the Awards Assembly have pushed their boundaries both in and out of the classroom this year - whether that’s working behind the scenes on a school theatre production or putting in extra effort on a committee. In doing so, they have made an incredibly positive impact on our community.
