Carbonear Collegiate honours class of 2015
Year after year, students come and go from Carbonear Collegiate, with graduates moving on to new challenges.
But the school always finds a way just before Christmas to honour its newest alumni. It did so last Wednesday at its annual awards night event, where diplomas were handed out to all graduates able to attend. The majority of the 100plus members of the school’s class of 2015 were present wearing caps and gowns.
Among those who unfortunately couldn’t attend the event was the night’s big winner. Chantelle Slade earned the prestigious Governor General’s Medal for claiming top grades among Level III students for the 2014-15 school year. She also claimed the school’s academic achievement award and the Cameron Scholarship as the female with the highest marks in her class.
The male recipient of that award was Kaiden Clarke, who also earned the male Sentinel of the Year honour. He shared the male athlete of the year award with Joshua Rogers.
Asha Whiteway was busy last Wednesday, as her name was called to the stage multiple times. She took home the social awareness and humanities award, the Burch Nash Memorial Award, and was named the female Sentinel of the Year among Level III students.
Carbonear Collegiate principal Carla Roberts told the graduates on hand to cease the opportunities that await them.
“Your communities are so very proud that you are among them,” she said.
