Each year, the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) celebrates exceptional students across our school district at the Annual Student Awards of Excellence Ceremony. This year, due to COVID-19 precautions in place, we are recognizing and congratulating our student recipients virtually!
Congratulations to Paul Carniglia who won the Student Award of Excellence & Clare Butler who won the Spirit of Inclusion Award for Christ the King Catholic Secondary School!
Paul is a dedicated, positive and strong leader who has made a significant contribution to both our Catholic school and local community. Through his involvement in his Church, Student Council, Student Senate, Eco team, captain of the Rugby team and various other initiatives, Paul always upholds and promotes the values of equity, dignity and respect.
Clare is a unique individual who has the natural ability to make everyone feel valued and included. She is an outstanding student and role model who looks beyond her academics to ensure that all students in the school are welcomed and made to feel part of the community. As an honour roll student, Clare is also a dedicated Co-Leader of Best Buddies and visits with the Life Skills class every day and on her own time. She was nominated by staff to be a grade 11 mentor to grade 9 students with high needs. Clare embodies the school motto of Equity, Dignity and Respect.
