Spartan Stars Applications Due

Valedictorian Nomination Time


Nominate yourself for Valedictorian 2022


Hi Grads!  

This is a nomination form for any graduating student who is interested in becoming the Valedictorian for 2022.  The valedictorian is the graduate who has the honour of giving the final speech at the commencement ceremony.  Each graduating student will have the opportunity to vote for the Valedictorian of 2022.


Your role if you are elected Valedictorian is to write and deliver a speech for your classmates to be given at the graduation ceremonies in June. Do you have something you want to say to your grad class to inspire them as they leave RHS and head out into the world? Then please fill in this nomination form.  


You will need a teacher to support your nomination - typically this is the teacher who will help you write and practice your speech.  You will need two grads to support you.  


This form must be submitted by June 12 at noon.  


Voting to take place June 13 - 16 via another google form.   You must have a 250 word campaign "speech" ready for June 13 for grads to read to decide who they will vote for.  Voting closes at 4 pm on June 16th.


The name of the elected valedictorian will be announced on June 17th. 


Any questions, email Ms. Henry:  [email protected]

Iloki-Kirkwood Bursary


Last year this scholarship granted two $500 scholarships to students. The bursary was created to help disadvantaged female student-athletes in the Ottawa community by granting monetary scholarships so that athletic and academic equipment is not a barrier to success. Recipients of the bursary are selected from an essay writing contest. Along with the essay contest, the project also launched a “Powerful Panel”, where high school students were connected with a diverse group of positive & influential leaders who have mastered their respective fields.

Tomorrow's Trades Fast Track


Interested in a career in a unionize trade?? Already working in a trade? Already completed a coop placement in a trade? This opportunity might be for you


Tomorrow's Trades Fast Track is a 4 week pre-apprenticeship program designed to help support OYAP Graduates from the OCDSB to access unionized construction trades in Ottawa.


Participants can expect to visit several unionized construction trade training centres where they will have the opportunity to gain some additional experience, meet current apprentices, understand the current labour market and requirements to enter that particular union.  This process ensures that the participants have an opportunity to make informed decisions on the trade that is best suited to their interests, talents and future goals. 


Participants will also  meet with contractors, attend to active jobs sites and receive additional certifications.  During the program we will help the participants through their union application process (including support for intake exams)  and provide ongoing support as they make the connections to start their career.


Program Commitment

4 July - 29 July 2022

8:30am - 4:00pm


Participants will receive:  

  • $225 per week over the course of the program

  • A Milwaukee tool kit valued at $450

  • PPE voucher valued at $300

  • Construction sector training and certifications

  • First Aid and CPR training and certification 

Students will be supported in applying to the unions in trades listed here.  

We are accepting applications until 15 June 2022 at 4:00pm.

Successful candidates will be notified by 22 June 2022 at 4:00pm.

Questions can be directed to Candace Carson ([email protected])
