After carefully reviewing the numbers, our registrar, Alison Peters, is ready to declare the school champion of National Capital History Day:
Congratulations to Cairine Wilson Secondary School, winners of the Top School award!
The award is determined by a combination of points for participation (each student who enters NCHD receives points for his or her school) and for wins (winners in each category receive additional points for their schools).
Cairine Wilson students Janaki Parerkh (Senior Website – French), Geordan Coutts (Junior Documentary – French) and Elisa Gasparro (Junior Essay – French) each won medals in their categories, helping to put their school team over the top for the overall win. But congratulations must go to all the students from Cairine Wilson who entered projects, each helping their school win the National Capital History Day Trophy. It was clearly a team effort that was led by teachers Elaine Bryans and Anne-Marie Robinson-Sisk.
Cairine Wilson will receive the torch from Glebe Collegiate Institute, which won the inaugural trophy in 2014.
Finally, congratulations to all the students who participated in National Capital History Day. We are just starting to receive our judges’ feedback surveys and they were all very impressed. We’ll post some of their comments soon!
