We are proud of our students and their work with others, within the school
and the community. Our students help peers with their learning, provide support
to peers on the playground, organize awareness campaigns and events, collect
donations, fundraise for worthwhile causes, help others in many ways around the
school, and support environmental initiatives to improve our community and our
world. The Seine River School Division Board of Trustees recognizes individual
students and student groups that support citizenship within their schools and
community by providing annual Student Citizenship Awards. Students and groups at
Early Years, Middle Years, and High School are recognized for their
contributions. Some of the applicants are also selected to receive a certificate
of recognition and a financial award that is shared between the charity of
choice of the student/team, the student/team, and the student/team’s school.
Awards range from $150 at Early Years, to $300 at Middle Years and $450 at High
School. One individual and team from the recipients is also chosen to represent
Seine River School Division at the provincial awards ceremony at the annual
Manitoba School Boards Association convention in March.
If you know
of a Gr. 1-12 student who shows generosity and citizenship to peers and/or
within the community, encourage them to apply. Application forms are available from your school administrators. Deadline date for applications is March 11th, 2021. Applications
require a written submission from the student, a recommendation from the school,
and may include a recommendation from a community member or organization. Thank
you for helping us to recognize our outstanding citizens!
Do you know a student who loves to write, create music, dance, draw or who
shows a passion for many areas in the Arts?
Each year, the Seine River
School Division Board of Trustees provides six bursaries for creative students
in Grades 5-11 to attend the International Music Camp Summer School of Fine
Arts, held at the International Peace Gardens. Students attend the week long
camp and choose their focus for the week, learning alongside other keen students
in the same artistic area. The $500 bursary covers registration costs with any
balance remaining going to parents’ transportation costs. To see the exciting
opportunities at the camp, please see http://internationalmusiccamp.com/ .
Application forms are available from your school administrators. Deadline date for applications is March
11th, 2021. Applications require a written submission, a recommendation from the
school, as well as an example of the creative work from the student
(photographs, CDs, and other ways of presenting material are accepted).
Applications are open to any student with artistic interests.
