Grad­u­at­ing Grade: 12

The Kids Post - - The Vals -

“I’ll miss my friends and the Grade 7 girls the most. Haver­gal’s great­est strengths are the amaz­ing peo­ple within it.”

How do you think Haver­gal Col­lege has pre­pared you for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? Haver­gal does a great job of cel­e­brat­ing more than just aca­demics. I’m pre­pared to ac­cept suc­cess in its dif­fer­ent forms and ac­cord­ing to what is im­por­tant to me.

How does it feel to be awarded vale­dic­to­rian? I feel hon­oured and sur­prised [to re­ceive the Her­bert J. Ma­son Award]. Hon­oured be­cause there are so many de­serv­ing girls and sur­prised be­cause it means that I’m near­ing the end of my cheesy high-school-movie stage. Did you have a teacher who in­spired you? My men­tors Mr. Ni­chols & Ms. Wade are the lead­ers I as­pire to be. My phi­los­o­phy and drama teach­ers Mr. Fre­den­burg & Ms. Mor­ris have al­ways em­bod­ied what it is to be a good per­son. What ad­vice would you give to new stu­dents on how to get the most out of their time at Haver­gal? Talk to the teach­ers. They care so much and are al­ways sup­port­ive. What are your long-term ca­reer plans? I’m not sure yet! I’d love to work in en­ter­tain­ment at some point though. It would be amaz­ing to write the next Brook­lyn Nine-Nine or The Of­fice.
