42 Victoria Secondary School Students Earn Victoria Kiwanis Club Appreciation

The Kiwanis Club of Victoria is honoring forty two students from seven Secondary Schools at a special reception held at the Cedar Hill Golf Club on June 3, 2014. This event has been held for over 38 years. “It is a wonderful event to recognize the students who have gone above and beyond to achieve their own personal goals and to assist others in achieving theirs” said Paul DeGagne, the Kiwanis Director, event organizer.  “Further, Paul said that many of the local schools Esquimalt High Secondary, Lambrick Park Secondary, Mount Douglas Secondary, Oak Bay Secondary, Reynolds Secondary, Spectrum Community, Victoria High Secondary,  have attended the event every year for the past 38 years.”

The High School Administrators choose the students for the reception. “ We work with a number of key staff including, but not limited to:  Student leadership teachers, student club sponsors, and our school based team teachers said Mrs Randi Falls Principal from Victoria High School. As well “Typically, the students chosen have the "giving back" characteristic that Kiwanis so clearly embraces and celebrates.”  Further Dave Thomson, Oak Bay High School Principal said “the students are informed about the good that Kiwanis and other clubs provide to their communities and suggest that belonging can be both a great way to help and a great way to network as they move into adult life”.
