Certificate of Achievement Recipients
Dena Hansen, Blair Hilts and Diane Lessels of Georgian Bay Secondary School in Meaford are a model of teamwork for their students. The three led the development of an English, history, communications and business studies publication entitled Canada Learns: Canada Remembers, a history of World War II designed, written and published by students for students taking general-level Grade 10 courses. Many of the members of the publication team had weak reading, writing and speaking skills. This project gave them a context in which to develop their critical and creative thinking, and gave them confidence in their abilities and improved their academic and social skills. The team of Ms. Hansen, Mr. Hilts and Ms. Lessels provided excellent organization, careful monitoring and attention to detail, encouraging and inspiring the students to achieve the highest standards.
