School Scholarships


Above average academic achievement and a superior attitude are the major criteria considered by teachers as they nominate individuals for subject area recognition. The philosophy adhered to is that recognition be given to as many students as possible. Scholarships, subject certificates and bursaries are made possible by the Collegiate, Morden & area businesses and community groups.


The SpiritAward is intended to recognize the students who have put in their time and energy to make school activities successful. This may be through their leadership, enthusiasm, and/or commitment and involvement to bringing these events to a successful conclusion. The Spirit Award recognizes involvement in the many school activities that contribute to school life and atmosphere.


Four Senior (Grade 11 & 12 ) and four Junior (Grade 9 & 10) MeritAwards are presented to students for outstanding involvement in school activities outside of athletics.


The Physical Education Department awards a number of athletic awards to students involved in team and individual athletics. Minor athletic crests are awarded to deserving Grade 9 & 10 students and major athletic crests to deserving Grade 11&12 students. Each year trophies are awarded to the top female and male athletes of the year. Medals are awarded to zone and provincial athletic winners.


The General ProficiencyAward is presented to a Grade 12 student who has exemplified academic proficiency, student leadership, and significant involvement in school activities. This overall contribution will have had a positive impact on the school environment. The General ProficiencyAward is acknowledged through the presentation of a certificate and a cash award of $500.00.

The Grade 12 Academic, Spirit and Merit Awards are presented at graduation.

Note: Revision of policies/procedures may occur throughout the school year. Prior to implementation, discussions will occur with students and parents.
