Vince V.


Downsview, for the week of April 3rd, your Student of the Week is Vince V.
Vince is in the eleventh grade at Downsview.

Vince’s nomination has been in the works for some time. Staff members and students alike applaud Vince for his fine character. Let’s start with the praise from our staff. First, from Ms D’Andrea: “Vince has shown great improvement this year in his dance education. When I taught him first semester, I was blown away by his choreographic skills and ability to perform with such confidence and style. He won a dance award at Artsfest in January which was so deserved and I'm very proud of him. He is also an all-around good person- he helps others in class, demonstrates a positive attitude and a mature approach to learning. It has been such a pleasure teaching Vince. Congratulations on winning Student of the Week!”

Mr Pasian adds these descriptors of Vince: “very polite, never misses a class, high achiever, conscientious, willing to help others, kind.”

Mr Williamson affirms the good words with this: “Vince is a very good student. He is hard-working, always on time and maybe most importantly, he helps others in his group. He’s a pleasure to teach.” Mr Bovey describes Vince this way: “absolutely excellent. Vince is a diligent, hard worker and a good thinker, He is always engaged. Vince deserves this award.”

Mr Wallace rounds out the praise with this: “Vince is calm when chaos is flying around him; he is one of the most accomplished hard-working self-starters I have had the pleasure to teach. Vince makes each assignment an opportunity to challenge himself to learn more, to develop his skills and to demonstrate his appreciation for the education he is being given. He is a great mentor, a kind person, and a model citizen in the Downsview community. It was my honour to be his teacher.”

Vince, there is clearly a lot of love and respect for you. It’s also clear that you have earned this love and respect through your hard work and your kindness in helping others. We look forward to seeing you cross the stage later this week as an recipient of High Honours; your academic excellence matches your character. Congratulations once again on your win as Student of the Week.
