June 26, 2017 This Clap Out Tribute To Peterborough Custodian Mr. Hilts Is Awesome June 26, 2017/ PTBOCANADA The "clap out" is a cool tradition at many schools for Grade 8 students moving on to high school.What was extra cool about the clap out at St. John Catholic Elementary School in Peterborough on Monday (June 26th) was that retiring custodian Rick Hilts (aka "Mr. Hilts") was able to partake. Mr. Hilts gets the clap out Custodians are the unsung heroes of schools, so this "clap out" was a terrific gesture to Mr. Hilts and his profession.Watch the video below posted to the school's Twitter channel...Not only did we clap out our Gr. 8 graduating students but we also clapped out our custodian Mr. Hilts who retires at the end of this week! pic.twitter.com/guOkQja4vg— St. John Ptbo (@StJohnPVNC) June 26, 2017 Two of the best things about the south end of Peterborough are the Hilts Family and @StJohnPVNC.
