Scholarships & Awards
During September we have an awards ceremony to recognize students who have excelled in Academics during the previous school year. Three times a year, after a reporting period, a mini award’s ceremony is held to recognize the ongoing academic achievements of students. In June an achievement ceremony is held to recognize the outstanding efforts of students involved in athletics, community activities, and service to the school. The following is a partial listing of the many scholarships and bursaries available to students.
- SRRA Most Improved Student Award
At the conclusion of each year, the student judged to have shown the greatest overall improvement is presented with this award.
