Royal Recognition

​What is Royal Recognition?

  • Created by students, for students with the support of staff and administration.
  • Royal Recognition is focusing on students who have excelled or made a change in the community, however big or small. As well, we intend to recognize students who have expressed their passions and demonstrated qualities of the school's mission statement.​
  • Students may be nominated for excellence in any area.
    Approximately 10 recipients will be chosen and celebrated at our Royal Recognition Ceremony. A presentation highlighting the recipient's achievements will be shown to the audience.  (postponed)
    Who should I nominate?

  • Past recipients include groups and individuals who did incredible things in the Handsworth community, such as Grade 8 retreat leaders, Tech Crew, First Responders, and student athletes.
  • Think of someone, a club, a team, or a group who has gone above and beyond to make Handsworth a better place. Nominees may show excellence and achievement in any area. Or, nominate yourself; tell us why YOU deserve ROYAL RECOGNITION.
    Important Rules:

  • Students may nominate themselves, a peer, or group to be recognized. Forms must be submitted to the office before TBD. If you have any questions, you can find Mr. Pankiw by email (spankiw@sd44.ca).
  • All students selected to be recognized must agree to be included in a presentation as decided by the Royal Recognition Committee and agree to work in collaboration with the Committee in preparation for the Ceremony.
