Hapnot Collegiate will be honouring some of their top students at their second annual Undergraduate Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, October 8. "There are a number of presentations that are made to students to honour their achievements," said Principal John Clark. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Hapnot gymnasium to allow as many parents as possible to attend. Awards will be divided into three categories: one for academic achievements and honours, one for leadership and one for being an ambassador for the school. "We have a number of students each year that attend a variety of different conferences representing Hapnot Collegiate," said Clark. The ceremony will recognize students in grades 9-11 for their accomplishments last year. These awards were previously handed out at the graduation ceremony in June, but this is the second year that they have been held the following fall. "It's given us an opportunity to take a closer look and include more achievements than we would have had we done this in the spring," said Clark. Leadership awards may be given to people who are involved in activities such as student council, athletic council, or natural helpers. Academic awards are handed out for a variety of achievements, including honours, top marks for specific subjects, and awards of distinction. Students from Saskatchewan are also eligible to win Saskatchewan Achievement Awards. See 'Hapnot' P.# Con't from P.# Awards for being an ambassador to the school include three programs put on by the Rotary Club. It is an honour to be selected for these programs, and these students will be recognized for their contributions to the Model United Nations, Adventures in Citizenship and Adventures in Technology programs through the Rotary Club. Other ambassador awards will be given out for contributions to language, science and medical programs. A number of students who won provincial honours will be recognized as well. The general public is welcome to attend the ceremony, which will conclude with a reception for parents and students. In other Hapnot news, report cards will come out on October 9. School pictures will also be taken on this day. Parent's Day is October 16, so there will be early dismissal for all students. School will also be closed on the morning of October 17. The Halloween Dance will be held on October 29.
