Congratulations, Class of 2023!

On May 27, the Class of 2023 proudly graduated from Canadian Academy. This year's commencement ceremony marked the 100th one for our school. Our graduates were dressed in special outfits, some in their traditional costumes and others in formal attire, as they arrived to celebrate their huge milestone.

These are awards that some of the outstanding graduates received:

Valedictorian for overall high academic achievement

Ljlijana Hope Award - the student who positively influences those around him or her to make the world a better place

Kiwanis Service Award - the student who is deeply committed to compassionately impacting the world through their actions

Robert Hengal Leadership Award - the student who has been a student leader of the school

Nestlé College Award - the full IB Diploma student who has been actively involved in CAS activities, and has been a positive addition to the IB program and Canadian Academy

Caterpillar Mathematics Award - the student who demonstrates outstanding skills and contributions in the area of mathematics

Eli Lilly Award - the outstanding Biology/Chemistry student who has shown an interest in biochemistry with strong experimental ability and theoretical understanding

Outstanding Graduate Award - the student who exemplifies the academic excellence and citizenship, and contributes to the school community

We also enjoyed listening to three Senior Addresses. They mentioned their unique experience at CA, their supportive families and teachers, and precious moments spent with their lifelong friends. Their touching speeches brought a lot of smiles and tears to those in the audience.

Congratulations, Class of 2023 - we are tremendously proud of how far you have come and are grateful for your inspiration, initiative, and compassion for the school community. We are excited for your new adventures - you will surely be missed around here! We wish you continued success!
