Celebrate What’s Right With The World
“Celebrate What’s Right With The World” focussed on the powerful force of having a vision of possibilities can be for your. In this new video Dewitt Jones asks: “Do we choose to see those possibilities? Do we really believe they’re there?” He presents the concept that we can see it once we believe it. And when we believe it, we connect with a vision that opens us to possibilities and gives us the courage to soar.
Ontario Scholars
The report presented by Alana Murray included the total number of Ontario Scholars for the past 6 years 2000-01 to 2005-06. The year 2005-06 had the greatest number of Ontario Scholars at 473. Even with a declining enrolment, the number of Ontario Scholars in Bluewater has increased since 2004/05 due in part to the Student Success initiative and other supports provided at the secondary level.
