Week 23

Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of March 26th, 2018

Beatrice C.


Downsview, for the week of March 26th, your Student of the Week is Beatrice C.
Beatrice is in the twelfth grade at Downsview.

Beatrice’s nomination was launched by Joanna Delos Reyes, our Newcomer worker. She says: “Here is my nomination for the superstar, Beatrice. Beatrice has stood out and grown so much as a leader this past year. I don't know how I was able to survive and run some of my programs without the support of her and her peers! She's played a key role in helping me with the Newcomer programs at the school. She's reliable, friendly and mature. Thanks for being the ‘eyes on the ground’, outreaching, and a great role model.”

Not surprisingly, Beatrice brings her strength into the classroom, too. Hear this, from Ms D’Andrea: “Beatrice is a delight to teach. She has been in my dance classes and aquatic class in the past, and has demonstrated excellent organization, communication, and teamwork skills. She is always very pleasant and respectful and I enjoy having her in my class. She is intelligent, hard-working, and considerate of others. Congratulations on winning student of the week, Beatrice! You're awesome!”

Mr Pasian adds “Beatrice is a very enthusiastic, polite student who not only cares about how well she does in her classes but also how well others do.  She will no doubt after high school go on to help others and have a very successful career after Downsview.”

All of us in the Guidance Department can attest to Beatrice’s thoughtful and balanced concern for both herself and others. Ms de Jersey says: “We talk a lot about setting goals and deciding on a path. None of this is easy or straightforward. Beatrice, however, has put in the time and care to create her future. In Canada for only three years, Beatrice has already forged a clear path for herself in this country. She hopes to pursue studies in the medical area at the Michener Institute in the future. There is no doubt that Beatrice can achieve her goals.”

Beatrice, thank you for bringing your A-Game to our school and our community. We are better for your kind, smart leadership. Congratulations once again on your win as Student of the Week.
