Posted on 06/29/2022

Each year, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board Student Recognition Awards celebrate excellence in student leadership. Students are chosen by their principals and/or vice-principals for their demonstration of initiative, supported by the will to succeed, the dedication to finish what they started, and the commitment to achieve their personal best. Congratulations to this year’s recipient from Elizabeth Wyn Wood Secondary Alternate Program, Farah Dridi!


Farah Dridi has demonstrated incredible dedication, determination, and a will to succeed at Elizabeth Wyn Wood Secondary Alternate Program. With each challenge she has faced, she has not only persevered: she has thrived! Though responsibilities in her personal life have required much of her attention over the years, she has continued to progress in her credits and make plans for her life and career after secondary school. She was able to graduate after just two years at Elizabeth Wyn Wood, persevering through the pandemic, a dual credit course, and applications to college. Just two weeks after completing her Ontario Secondary School Diploma, Farah began the Police Foundations program at Algonquin College. Her outgoing demeanour has lit up the halls of Elizabeth Wyn Wood, and her drive to succeed has motivated other students to continue working hard towards graduation. Her ability to take control under challenging circumstances is evidence shows incredible personal initiative. Her teachers are so proud of her achievements and can’t wait to see what else she accomplishes!
