There appears to be a little confusion as to how the awards evening on Thursday, October 9th is going to run. Here’s some information that will hopefully answer your questions.
- A second phone call for awards other than honours will be made to your household. This process will continue for the next few days, so keep an eye out and don’t panic if you haven’t gotten an expected second call yet!
- Summa Cum Laude certificates will be handed out during the 7:00 PM ceremony, along with the other major awards.
- According to the automated messages, 30-IB subject level certificates will be handed out at 6:00 PM, but according to Ms. Symak-Tobychuk they will be handed out at the 7:00 PM ceremony. The information is not yet certain so it would be best to talk to her directly for further inquiries.
- There will not be certificates for IB courses taken at the 20 level.
- If you cannot make it to awards night, certificates will be available for pickup at school.
- This year there will be a photo area as well as complimentary beverages, so bring the whole family! There will also be great live music before the ceremony to keep guests entertained. (Hope you guys like piano music!)
It is a well-known fact that MAC students hold academic achievement to a high degree of importance, but keep in mind that regardless of the fact that you have received honours or top ten, you should be proud of what you have accomplished this past academic year. This night was organized to honour you and to recognize the hard work you have put into your success, so enjoy your spot in the limelight.
Hope to see everyone there!
