Six Oak Bay High students were among 42 students from seven secondary schools honoured by the Kiwanis Club of Victoria at a special reception held at the Cedar Hill Golf Club on June 3.

“It is a wonderful event to recognize the students who have gone above and beyond to achieve their own personal goals and to assist others in achieving theirs,” said Paul DeGagne, Kiwanis director and event organizer.

Students chosen have the “giving back” characteristic that Kiwanis embraces and celebrates, he said. This year’s honourees included students from Esquimalt Secondary, Lambrick Park Secondary, Mount Douglas Secondary, Oak Bay High, Reynolds Secondary, Spectrum Community and Victoria High schools.

Oak Bay High students honoured for their academic acheivement include Adam Walton, Jane Lindroos, Ella Van Neutegem, Kieran Atkinson, Mohammed Abousaleh and Sema Hamidi.

“The students are informed about the good that Kiwanis and other clubs provide to their communities and suggest that belonging can be both a great way to help and a great way to network as they move into adult life,” said Oak Bay High school principal Dave Thomson.

The Victoria Kiwanis Club Appreciation event has been held for more than 38 years.
