“The Grade 8 Award of Excellence is a very prestigious award and we look forward to celebrating and honouring the recipients every year,” says Erin Aylward, Principal of Ecole Gron Morgan Public School and Grade 8 Award of Excellence Committee member. “With the challenges imposed by COVID 19, we are still able to ensure that these remarkable Grade 8 students still receive the recognition that they so rightly deserve.”
