Mekhyi W.


Downsview, for the week of March 15th, we celebrate Mekhyi W. as our Student of the Week. Mekhyi is in the twelfth grade at Downsview.

Mekhyi has a lot of fans. Let’s hear first from our Vice Principal, Ms Forde: “Mekhyi is a bright, joyful, and valued member of our school community.  His creative energy uplifts everyone who has the pleasure of his company. Not only is he a good student, but he is also a kind and caring person. Mekhyi is a very deserving recipient of the ‘Student of the Week’ award!”

And, more praise from Ms Khoury: “Mekhyi, you are an amazing young man who is kind, loyal, honest, ambitious, fun and exciting! You love nature, the outdoors, planets and zoo animals. Throughout working with you one on one for the last several years, I am so proud of you and how much you have grown and strived to learn. During this whole pandemic, you have been trying your very best to do your best and I can’t thank you enough and want you to know how proud I am of you. Going virtual was not easy for you, but I admire how hard you have worked on yourself to get online and participate. You always consider someone else’s feelings; you have become more independent and the unconditional love you have for your family is so beautiful. You are a gem! You are so fun to hang out with and you can put a smile on anyone’s face with that contagious smile. Thank you again for doing your best during this pandemic as you have been home for a long time, and I am honored to be working with you for all these years. You’re the BEST BUDDY!”

And finally, hear this from Mr Khan: “Being a home room teacher, I found that Mekhyi is a very ambitious, responsible and kind-hearted  student in my class. He always tries his best to complete any academic task during the specific time.  He is the role model for other students in my class.”

Well, Mekhyi, you heard it here. Your loving energy, your diligence with any task set before you and your resilience in tough times have earned you this award. Congratulations again, Mekhyi, you are a very deserving Student of the Week.
