Proud parents and teachers gathered in the gymnasium at Ecole Lorette Immersion Tuesday evening to honour Seine River School Division students who’ve made extraordinary contributions to their classroom and community.

The 2018 Student Citizenship Awards ceremony saw students from three age categories receive certificates of recognition and cash prizes split equally between the student, a charity of their choice, and their school.

School staff and community members forwarded nominations to a committee that included trustees Jennifer Stefansson, Gary Nelson, and Christine Roskos, who helped distribute the awards.

"We’re proud of you all," said Monica Biggar, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction.

Ste. Anne Elementary School student Ayden Reimer scooped up the early years award for his many kindhearted gestures, including cleaning the classroom without being asked.

Bianca Siem, a Grade 10 student from Ste Anne Collegiate, was awarded the high school award for her anti-bullying work with the school’s gay-straight alliance, and her volunteer efforts with the Lions Club.

Abby Kapelus of Ile des Chenes School took home the middle years award for assisting special needs students, organizing a local food drive, and cleaning up after the community’s fall supper.

Kapelus was also selected as SRSD’s nominee for the 2019 Manitoba School Boards Association’s citizenship awards, the provincial equivalent of this week’s divisional ceremony.
