Student Award

Each year, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board Student Recognition Awards celebrate excellence in student leadership. Students are chosen by their principals and/or vice-principals for their demonstration of initiative, supported by the will to succeed, the dedication to finish what they started, and the commitment to achieve their personal best. Congratulations to this year’s recipient from Gloucester High School, Nadiya Ariaratnam!


Nadiya Ariaratnam has achieved great academic success throughout her high school years, but what is even more remarkable is the commitment she has shown as an active member of the Gloucester High School community. She has been part of the school band, Student Council, the A-Team (junior leadership), the Black Youth Diversity Group, and LINK Crew, always looking to do more even when academics keep her busy. This year she made a huge impact as Student Council President, leading the graduating class through a truly difficult time. She has also taken the lead on advocacy projects like Gender-Based Violence Awareness and Prevention, all while helping others to find their voice as well. In all that she does, Nadiya shows passion and commitment while striving for greatness: her teachers and peers wish her all the best next year as she pursues a Concurrent Bachelor of Arts and Education.
