It's nice to see children smile when they receive praise. At the GW Cooke awards tonight I saw lots of smiles; students for recognition and parents because it they're proud of their children.
Special thank you to LInda Zieffle for Emcee'ing the event, Rosemary Nemanishen and Linda Clark for presenting the awards, Riley Richardson for giving an amazing student response to the audience, Bronwen Sutherland and her crew at the Clarke theatre for their assistance, and Yvonne Halverson and her staff for making the cookies that were enjoyed at the end of the evening.
It's hard to get everyone with their eyes open so i've attached several versions of the group shot from this evening.
If anyone has pictures to share, please do so.
