Grad­u­at­ing Grade: 12

The Kids Post - - The Vals -

“I am not in­spired by one teacher so much as the ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion ex­hib­ited by many SCS teach­ers.”

How do you think St.Cle­ment’s School has pre­pared you for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? In my opin­ion, one of the most valu­able lessons St. Cle­ment’s School (SCS) teaches its stu­dents is con­fi­dence. The women who grad­u­ate from SCS are in­stilled with the con­fi­dence to pur­sue their in­ter­ests with­out fear of fail­ure be­cause they have grown up in an en­vi­ron­ment that em­pow­ers women.

What’s your best mem­ory of the school? My best mem­ory of the school is as­so­ci­ated with our Grade 12 com­mon room, a place where stu­dents in their se­nior year can gather at any point dur­ing the day. The com­mon room is a com­mu­nal place that in­spires many con­ver­sa­tions, both im­por­tant and fun. The magic of the com­mon room is that, no mat­ter who your clos­est friends are, who­ever is in the room con­verses with each other. What ad­vice would you give to new stu­dents on how to get the most out of their time at SCS? The best tip I would give is to get in­volved by join­ing sports teams, the mu­si­cal, choirs, clubs and more. Our school of­fers so many dif­fer­ent pro­grams and ac­tiv­i­ties where you can meet new peo­ple and de­velop smaller com­mu­ni­ties within our col­lec­tive stu­dent body.
