Grade 8 Award of Excellence

The Lakehead Public Schools Foundation is very proud to sponsor the Grade 8 Award of Excellence, inspired by Walter Poshtar. Walter Poshtar was a Teacher, Vice Principal and Principal for the Fort William Board of Education mainly at the Intermediate level. Mr. Poshtar saw Grade 8 students as vital, inquisitive, caring, and above all, involved in life itself. The key requirements of the Grade 8 Poshtar Award: achievement and citizenship are integral components of this award.

The Grade 8 Award of Excellence recognizes individuals who have achieved high standards of academic excellence as well as demonstrating leadership within the school and our community. Through their daily actions within our schools and in our community, these students truly personify the Lakehead Public Schools Values of:


Studies prove that students are more successful in school when they are supported by their parents and guardians. Our annual Grade 8 Award of Excellence celebration is a testament to the dedication of the parents and guardians of the award recipients.

We celebrate the successes of these outstanding Grade 8 students and wish them well on their future aspirations. We know that these students will have an everlasting impact on our schools and our community.
