The Coronach School Annual Awards Day was held on June 14, 2012.
The afternoon began with the singing of “O Canada” by the Grade 3/4 class, led by Miss McLean, followed by a welcome by Miss Ashley Rachul. Rachul, along with Grade 12 student Connor Ferrie were emcees for the afternoon. Rachul and Ferrie have often taken the emcee duties at the school and always get many a laugh along the way.
The pair began with a list of things that make Coronach School “great”. According to the pair, only at Coronach School do you book an appointment for a grilled cheese or where “Potluck” is the answer to everything. They also commented that the “Running of the Bulls” has nothing on the rush for morning snack and how Chuck Norris has nothing on Administrative Assistant, Jo Marit.
Awards were then presented as follows:
