The Morinville Christian School’s 29th Annual Awards Night was held Thursday night at the St. Albert Inn and Suites and included all the school’s Junior and Senior students. Principal Lou Brunelle introduced the school staff, Board members, new families, Elders and special guest Councillor Stephen Dafoe.
Brunelle offered thanks to those who have provided services, helping hands, volunteers, donations and support to the school prior to commencing with the awards presentations.
Medal presentations for Bible Club, Honour Roll, Distinction and Great Distinction were awarded by Councillor Stephen Dafoe; Doug Flemming, School Board Director; and Marian Agrey, Father’s House Elder.
Students provided parents and guests with two presentations: a dance routine performed by the juniors, and a play directed by Drama teacher Sarah -Arlene Cluett titled The Ladies of Loose Lips Lane.
Pastor Brunelle said it has been 29 years since the church school was established in Morinville. This September Kindergarten to Grade 2 students will make up 50 per cent of the school’s population. The overall numbers of students is expected to be up by 20 per cent this fall.
