It was great to welcome back so many members of our community last week to acknowledge Remembrance Day in our Chapel. As I look at the Rolls of Honour at the School, I am always struck by how many alumni have given service to their country. It is humbling to reflect on this. It also makes me truly thankful for their service in the support of others.
As a School, it is wonderful to see that students also help serve our community. As I write this Rev. Matthew Pickering is working with students to help prepare them for the annual Sony Christmas Camp which will see our students helping others in the community living with a disability. I am always struck by our students’ willingness to give through the many community service offerings the school supports. Again, it is humbling to see that they want to help others to make the world a better place for all.
Today marks the last day of TCE exams and for our Grade 12 students the end of the academic year. We wish them well with their results. I look forward to seeing them again at Speech and Graduation Evening along with parents. A reminder that due to renovations at the Albert Hall the event will be held at The Silverdome this year.
I hope you enjoy the weekend with your families.
