St. Basil Elementary and Junior High School is, or claims to be, a Catholic school.

Quote
The mission of St. Basil School is to support the development of each individual with the support of the resources available, provincial laws, and the moral and spiritual guidance of the Catholic Church.  This includes the reinforcement of the knowledge, skills, behaviours and desire for truth, which prepare one to live eternally with God.

"Development" and "reinforcement" apparently do not include recognition of achievement.

I hated the honor roll when I was a kid, because I always got C's in math since it is just my crappy subject.  Got A's in everything else.

But instead of whining about it, I just tried harder.  Today we're raising a generation of wusses and wimps.

Exactly. Now whining is rewarded.

Don't even get me started.

I remember back in high school of certain classmates of mine (usually very high achievers) always asking for a retake every time I managed to outperform them on a test. Sure enough, pretty much every time they asked, they got to retake the test after school.

I never whined about things that I struggled with (mostly homework; I was exhausted after school).
