ANYA MUR­PHY

Grad­u­at­ing Grade: 12

The Kids Post - - Post Valedictorian -

“I learned so much from the stu­dents around me, es­pe­cially from those in my class. They have a pas­sion for suc­cess.”

How do you think The Bishop Stra­chan School has pre­pared you for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? The Bishop Stra­chan School has al­ways pro­vided stu­dents with sup­port, es­pe­cially when plan­ning for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion. Start­ing in Grade 9, we were given a choice to pur­sue a range of cour­ses that al­lowed us to nar­row in on our in­ter­ests.

Did you have a teacher who in­spired you? In Grade 10, I had the priv­i­lege of hav­ing Mr. Ste­wart as my Cana­dian his­tory teacher. I loved his­tory at a young age, but I for­got about that in­ter­est as I grew older. Mr. Ste­wart's pas­sion for his­tory and Canada re­minded me of my de­sire to learn more about dif­fer­ent cul­tures and the pro­gres­sion of so­ci­ety. How does it feel to be awarded vale­dic­to­rian? I never imag­ined that I would be se­lected as vale­dic­to­rian. At first, I was ter­ri­fied as I am not a pub­lic speaker. But my teach­ers and class­mates at BSS have al­ways pushed me to face my fears. What are your plans for univer­sity? In the fall, I will be at­tend­ing Barnard Col­lege.
