Delilah A - high jump

Athletes can attend as many practices as they wish, but MUST pick up a permission form from the office or Ms. Newton and return it to Ms. Newton (Rm. 213) directly by Monday, May 6th

  • Tumbling Practices — May 7, 14, and 28 at OES (times will vary based on skill level — see the permission form for details)

SCHOLARSHIPS

The Spruce Grove Ag Society is offering  a scholarship to assist a post secondary student enrolled in an agriculture related field of studies.  Although the Scholarship has a residency stipulation, Onoway High School students are being included as there may be a cross boundary student who could qualify.  It might be of interest that the 2022 recipient was Sarah Bowman, an OHS grad, who lived outside our boundaries but belonged to a 4-H club in Parkland County.  See a counsellor in the Wrap Around or the posters around the school for more information.

 

 

The Henry Tomlinson Memorial Scholarships that are sponsored by Ste. Anne Natural Gas are accepting applications and have a deadline of June 30.  They are intended for Gr. 12 students whose families are SANG Utility members or who live in a SANG service area.  For more information, come down to the Wrap Around and see one of the counsellors or check out one of the posters around the school.     

 

The Town of Onoway has a $500 bursary.  Information is posted in the Wrap Around room.  For students who are still interested in applying for scholarships, this can be an opportunity to gain an additional competitive edge, as many students' interest in scholarships has lessened by this time of year.

Here are some unique scholarships that are currently available and don't have very many completed applications. 

Here are a few resources you can use to help students who are applying for scholarships:

At the bottom of https://scholartree.ca/educators, there is an email template that you can use to let students know about ScholarTree
