Andrew Flint of Tricentia Academy, Arnold’s Cove has been awarded the Canadian Parents for French Student of the Year at the Lieutenant Governors House.

Andrew Flint has been awarded the Canadian Parents for French Student of the year. His $1000 scholarship will go towards his tuition for Memorial this fall. He has been accepted to the Faculty of Engineering.

Andrew is a well-rounded, active devoted student and volunteer. He actively participated in the Go Project organized by the United Church of Canada. This is an outreach experience for youth 14 to 18 from across Canada and beyond, who gather together for 11 days to assist various community projects. For three summers, Andrew worked with soup kitchens, community gardens, food banks, and community clean-ups of public spaces. He also worked with the Habitat for Humanity Restore, tutored new Canadians, and provided maintenance work. He volunteered at Burry Heights Summer Camp as a counsellor twice. He was responsible as part of a team to lead and ensure the well-being of 90 children aged 9 to 13, in a residential camp setting. The camp provided programming in the form of sports, crafts, nature activities, swimming, canoeing, spiritual formation, and creative expression while ensuring their enjoyment, health and safety. Andrew helped to create and deliver program activities.

Andrew assisted the United Church Confirmation Exploration classes in the Norman's Cove Pastoral Charge as they met over a three-day retreat to study faith issues as they related to everyday life. He helped facilitate learning and sharing sessions, recreational activities, meal preparation and clean-up, and mentoring members of the class. As a member of various school sports teams, he has been actively involved in fundraising for team travel to tournaments and regional and provincial championships. He has been a member of the Honour Roll for the past four years and received a Scholar Athlete award in Level II.

Andrew is currently taking Advanced Math 3200, French 3200 and Physics 2204 with CDLI. CDLI and Tricentia Academy would like to congratulate Andrew on receiving the Canadian Parents for French Student of the Year award and wish him all the best in his future endeavors with the Faculty of Engineering at Memorial University in the fall.
