Undergrad Awards at Tupper will not be continuing on as they have in the past. Prior to this school year, Departments met over the course of a few weeks during their lunch and nominated students to receive subject awards. Citations were written by staff and compiled into a script for the ceremony. Medals and trophies were ordered and engraved. Parents and guardians were invited to the school to watch their children receive awards and be acknowledged for their hard work. This event was organized by a group of staff who took on the various roles in addition to their regular classroom teaching. This year, school staff have met and decided to focus their collective time on the implementation of the new curriculum and assessment. We will continue to honour the hard work of students through the Honour Roll and Principal's List awards each term as well as a year-end Service Award Ceremony on June 22.
