The academic and extracurricular involvement of the students of École polyvalente des Îles was highlighted Monday afternoon during a recognition gala that took place in hybrid mode.
The students were gathered for the occasion in the library, while the ceremony was filmed.
A total of 57 awards were given to students for their behavior in class, their participation in sports, cultural or artistic activities, their perseverance in school, or for major personal projects.
One of the school’s co-directors, Karen Renaud, describes the pride she and the other staff members feel for their students.
Fellow co-director Annick Nadeau says dropout rates during the pandemic have been similar here to other regions.
However, she points out that guidance services and follow-up with partner organizations ensured that young people who dropped out of high school had other academic or professional projects in mind.
The annual event, which was held with parents in attendance until 2019, had to be canceled in 2020 due to health restrictions, and was held virtually for a week in 2021.
