the many busy activities and themes reigning throughout the halls of Vincent
Massey Secondary School, one of the most prevalent is, of course, academics! Each year students, teachers, and staff all
strive together to achieve a common goal: to grow, develop, serve, and learn---
both together and from each other. How
do we recognize the significant effort and achievement which occur so commonly
throughout our classrooms, library, and even hallways? This is where Massey’s Annual Academic Awards
Night--- which provides a forum for celebration in honour of outstanding
academic achievement--- takes centre stage!
On Thursday October 23rd, 2014, staff and
students, along with friends and family, gathered in recognition of exceptional
academic accomplishment for the 2013-2014 school year. Following a speech from Principal, Mr. Ash, each
department gave a quick introduction regarding their program, along with the merits
of the chosen students. Students
received their certificates on stage and were able to take a picture in the
photo booth with staff, friends, and family to commemorate the night. A light reception with refreshments followed,
allowing students to mingle and bask in their accomplishments!
In order to demonstrate and maintain such a consistent
dedication to learning and excellence, not only is a love of knowledge and discipline
required, but there is also a conscious decision to sacrifice for the attainment
of future goals. We are proud of our students
for finding the base of true future fulfillment, which involves taking pride in
what they do, along with maintaining integrity, honour, and servitude within
their everyday choices.
