Week 4

Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of October 10, 2017

Casho, Faizo and Harimo M.

Downsview’s Students of the Week for the week of October 10th, 2017, are Casho, Faizo and Harimo M. who are in grades 12, 11 and 10.

These three girls share many things, and they are also very much their own people. What they have in common, though, is extraordinary.  They exemplify the best qualities of community leadership:  service, dedication, reliability, and generosity. It is truly amazing how they know when to appear to help out, to make things happen.

Here is what Mr. Syal says: I had the pleasure of teaching these young ladies. They are polite and caring human beings. They helped me during the summer school to build a robot. Every morning at the breakfast club they greet every student and teacher with a smile. 

Here is what Ms La Rosa says: These students are part of breakfast club....they come every day with a smile and ready to volunteer to help run the breakfast club....Girls, your help is greatly appreciated and you make the morning run more smoothly because of your help. Thank you for volunteering every day!!

And here is what Ms.Yasi says: Casho, Faizo and Harimo were such an amazing help for the Orange Day Bake Sale. They kindly volunteered their help  and thanks to their fantastic organization and skill we sold EVERYTHING!! Their friendly and courteous demeanour and ability to remain calm, collected and organized while selling sweets to students made Downsview's first bake sale fundraiser a huge success!!!! It was a pleasure to be able to meet and work them! A big thank you to these lovely ladies from Ms. Yasi and Ms. Lee!!!!! 

And finally, here is what Mr. Wallace, who nominated the students says: Casho, Faizo and Harimo have a choice, as we all do, about how to spend their time. They decide to serve their community all the time. Their generosity and reliability raise the quality of life for all. In addition, their dedication and their smiles hide a kind of strength and courage that few can imagine. These three are very special people.

Congratulations, Cash, Faizo and Harimo, on your win as Students of the Week!
