2023-2024 Student Recognition Awards
Posted on 06/25/2024

Each year, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board Student Recognition Awards celebrate excellence in student leadership. Students are chosen by their principals and 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 winner from Brookfield High School: Caio B.

Caio is an exceptional scholar and a genuinely good human with a keen eye for the needs of others and a passion for effecting positive change. He is extraordinary ⎼ intellectually astute and a leader committed to community and global betterment. Caio is not simply focused on achieving high grades; rather, he seeks a deep understanding of the subject matter he is engaged with and applies what he learns to real-world situations. The thing that Caio’s peers report to value the most about him is how he creates safe spaces where people feel valued. His collaborative spirit and respect for diverse perspectives greatly enriches the school. Because of this, people gravitate to him and he is able to bring people together and effectively collaborate towards a common goal. Caio's family moved from Brazil and, despite the challenges of adapting to a new country and culture, Caio has shown remarkable resilience and determination. He viewed adapting to a new language as an opportunity: he fully embraced Canadian culture and has not only excelled in learning the English language, but also taken the initiative to learn French.
