Spring 2024 Co-Curricular Awards at Lakefield College School

This week, we celebrated our annual Spring Co-Curricular Awards ceremony, honouring the outstanding achievements of our students in athletics, arts, STEM, and various enriching programs.

Athletic Achievements

The spring term was packed with remarkable athletic accomplishments. Highlights include:
  • Girls’ Soccer: Our 1st Girls' Soccer team made a thrilling move by hosting the CISAA Championship game on a picturesque Regatta Day. With students and alumni cheering them on, they delivered a stellar performance against Crestwood Prep, securing our only team championship of the spring.
  • Tennis: Our Tennis teams had their strongest season in years, with four players (Leon Gell ’24, Xavier Nadeau ’24, Sergio Ferez Piotti ’27, and Masa Tanigushi ’27) advancing to OFSAA Tennis. Each player won matches, marking a significant milestone for the program.
  • Golf: Kaydn Farrugia ’25 emerged victoriously in the CISAA Golf Championship, conquering what is considered the most competitive division in Ontario.
  • Rowing: Morgan Harris Stoertz ’24 achieved an impressive 3rd place at the national rowing championships, earning a tryout with the Junior National Team.
  • Ultimate Frisbee: The OFSAA Ultimate Festival was a massive success, thanks to the dedication of numerous volunteers. Special thanks to the organizing committee: Garret, Chelsea, Carmello, Laura, Claire, Palmer, Mr. Harris, and convenors Dr. Melville and Mr. Burns. Our Ultimate team played with heart, finishing as runners-up in the spirit category.

Celebrating the Arts and Full-Year Programs

In addition to our athletic triumphs, we also celebrated the exceptional achievements in our arts and full-year co-curricular programs. Our full-year co-curricular program offers a diverse range of performance-based and recreational opportunities for students, fostering growth in various fields.
Highlights from this year include:
  • Public Speaking: Morgan Harris Stoertz ’24 and Fiona Pazari ’24 represented LCS at the International Independent Schools Public Speaking Competition in Vancouver.
  • Music: Over 80 student musicians showcased their talents in the Winter Concert and Spring Concert.
  • DECA: Sixteen students excelled at the DECA Regionals competition, with three advancing to the Provincials in Toronto.
  • Photography: Joseph Ji ’27’s photograph, “Raindrop,” was selected for the SPARK Photo Festival’s juried exhibit.
  • Student Leadership: Five students took the initiative to lead their own co-curricular programs, demonstrating exceptional leadership skills.

Spring Term Arts Programs

During the spring term, students participated in three vibrant arts programs: Culinary Arts, Ceramics, and the production of Clue.
  • Culinary Arts: Under Chef Evan Podd’s expert guidance, students honed their culinary skills, creating delicious dishes such as crème brulée, molten chocolate cakes, pad thai, and homemade burgers. Their passion for culinary arts was evident in every creation.
  • Ceramics: Our Ceramics program saw both new and experienced students exploring the art of working with clay. They learned hand-building and wheel techniques, experimented with glazes, and developed foundational skills for future ceramic endeavours. Excitingly, this term saw the installation of our first new kiln in 40 years, inspiring students to consider ceramics as a potential career path or summer job opportunity.
  • Theatre: The production of Clue was a resounding success. This beloved board game-turned-play brought laughter and intrigue to The Bryan Jones Theatre. The cast and crew delivered three different endings, showcasing their creativity and impeccable comedic timing. Memorable moments, like the table falling from the catwalk and the clever cameo appearances, left a lasting impression on the audience.
As we conclude the 2023/24 school year, we congratulate all students and program facilitators for their exceptional dedication and accomplishments. The Spring Co-Curricular Awards ceremony truly exemplified the talent, perseverance, and curiosity within the LCS community. Below, we proudly recognize the award recipients for the Spring Term and Full-Year 2023/24 programs.
