McTavish Awards @ Clarke Road Secondary School
Date: May 31, 2017 at 4:30pm
In 1973 the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation in London, established the McTavish Award in memory of the late Ernie McTavish. In 2009, the award name was changed to the McTavish Award in order that Ernie’s son, the late Ted McTavish, could also be honoured. We are pleased to promote through this award the fine ideals of both Ernie and Ted McTavish within Thames Valley Secondary Schools.
One of the major aims of this achievement recognition program is to reward those students who best exemplify the philosophy of the educational system in which they are a part. In this particular case, the basic philosophy of our educational system is to enable each student to attain the maximum development of his/her whole person that is the physical, mental, emotional, social and moral sides of the individual.
