Hamilton School for academics; Ciara Genaille of Kildonan-East Collegiate for arts; and Imran Arb of Hampstead School for self-advocacy.
Certificates of Recognition (for excellence in assisting children and youth with special needs) were presented to: teacher Tammy McAuley from Hampstead School; and a group of Dr. Hamilton students—Mia Bouwman, Savia Chastelaine, Connor Hodgson, Olivia Kuivenhoven, and Lucas Park—for their support of fellow student Carlyn Belot.
Congratulations, as well, to Rob Kolisnyk and Russ Thordarson of Kildonan-East Collegiate on both being nominated for Educational Assistant of the Year.
