Grad­u­at­ing Grade: 12

The Kids Post - - The Vals -

“I know that the con­fi­dence that Brank­some has in­spired in me is in­cred­i­bly valu­able.”

How does it feel to be awarded vale­dic­to­rian? It was an in­cred­i­ble hon­our to have been elected as vale­dic­to­rian, es­pe­cially be­cause I was voted in by my fel­low grad­u­ates. Did you have a teacher who in­spired you? An as­pect of Brank­some that struck me right away, when I started in Grade 10, was how in­cred­i­ble all of the teach­ers are. The pas­sion that they have for their sub­jects leaps out at you in the class­room. What was your big­gest ac­com­plish­ment to date? I am most proud of qual­i­fy­ing for the French Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Grade 6. It was my first year de­bat­ing, and my French was not quite flu­ent, but I took the risk and did sur­pris­ingly well with my part­ner. What is one piece of ad­vice you would give to Brank­some Hall stu­dents? En­joy your time at Brank­some. Take ad­van­tage of the wide va­ri­ety of op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to you. Brank­some is an ex­cel­lent place to take a risk and gen­er­ally pur­su­ing your pas­sions. What’s your best mem­ory of the school? My best mem­ory was Spirit Week in Grade 11 – where the grades com­pete in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties. While we didn’t win, I felt more con­nected with my grade than ever.
