Students Achieve 100%

The staff and students of Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute celebrated yesterday after learning that 100% of their Grade 10 students, as well as all previously eligible students, who wrote the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) on March 31st, 2012 passed both sections.

The 400 students who wrote the test were informed of their successful results last week by mail, but the official whole-school results were released yesterday by EQAO, the Ministry organization that facilitates the administration of the provincial test. Bill Papaconstantinou the principal said, "The students did an outstanding job," in a brief phone interview, "I couldn't be more proud!" Apparently the students had a difficult time with the test last year.

When asked about the unprecedented successful results of his school's students, Mr. Papaconstantinou revealed that the students had been prepared throughout the year for the March 31st test. "The students were invited to workshops, were offered resources, and were taught literacy skills cross-curricular throughout the year."

Upon hearing the news of their high pass rate, the principal declared the last hour of yesterday's school day to be a time for celebration. Music was broadcast throughout the school's classroom LCD projectors. Mr. Papaconstantinou said with a smile, "The preparation and excellent results shows the goal of our students: Honour and Excellence,“ The goal now for Churchill students and staff are to keep up the excellent results.
