Here are some honours and awards you may wish to work toward:

Honour Roll

  • 80% average with no course mark below 60%.  Students must be enrolled in a full course load.
  • Students may withdraw from a course and remain eligible if they are still taking a full course load (7 for grade 12 students and 8 for all other students).
  • When calculating Year-end Honour Roll, the final grades are used and 2 credit courses are weighted half as much as 4 credit courses to reflect 50 hours of instruction vs. 100 hours.  This only applies to grade 8 and 9.

 Governor General's Academic Medal

  • The average includes all grade 11 and grade 12 courses as listed on the student's official Transcript of Grades issued by the Ministry of Education. The average cannot be anticipated; it must be calculated based on final results after provincial exams.
  • There is no differentiation between "academic" and "vocational" types of courses; all those courses taken which directly result in the obtaining of a secondary school diploma, should, for obvious reasons, be included in the calculation.
  • This award is given the June after graduation to allow for provincial exam marks to be included in the average.

Honours Medallion

  • This is awarded to grade 12 graduating students with a B average in all grade 10-12 courses leading to graduation.
