2023-2024 Student Recognition Awards
Posted on 06/25/2024

Each year, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board Student Recognition Awards celebrate excellence in student leadership. Students are chosen by their principals and vice-principals for their demonstration of initiative, supported by the will to succeed, the dedication to finish what they started, and the commitment to achieve their personal best.


Congratulations to this year’s winner from Frederick Banting Secondary Alternate Program: Sydney D.!


Over her time at Frederick Banting Secondary Alternate Program, Sydney has shown remarkable perseverance in both her personal and school life. Sydney has had to overcome many challenges, but she sets high expectations for herself, makes a plan, sticks to it, and asks for help when she needs it. Her ability to follow through on plans has allowed her to graduate on time, with a part-time job as a member of the kitchen staff at a prestigious restaurant, while excelling in her Dual Credit course at Algonquin. Students and staff at Banting admire Sydney for all that she has achieved. She is an inspiration to many students because she has been unwavering in her focus while showing great determination to handle all life sends her way. Perhaps most importantly, Sydney is kind, compassionate, and reflective. The school community will miss Sydney rocking out to her tunes as she leaves the building, but has no doubt that she will have great success in the Culinary Arts program at Algonquin.
