Participation in the Kiwanis Music Festival resulted in a total of 20 prizes which included 9 gold medals, 7 silver medals, and 4 bronze medals. Four students were awarded scholarships and two students were invited to compete in the Kiwanis Music Festival Provincial Finals in Peterborough. Both performers performed beautifully and one was awarded third place out of 300 performers from across the province.
