Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of May 3, 2021
Emma N. & Tiffany B.
Downsview, for the week of May 3rd, we celebrate a duo as Students of the Week. Emma N. and Tiffany B. are both in the eleventh grade.
Emma and Tiffany are Downsview SS students based at Virtual School this year. Making this shift cannot have been easy. Even now, while we are all learning from home, moving away from the DSS base of known teachers and peers is a challenge. Emma and Tiffany have not only met this challenge, they have left it in their dust. Without all the comforts of their home school, both young women are achieving excellence in their academics at Virtual School. Their remarkable results are a testament to their resilience and their hard work.
And, they have taken their commitment to education even further. Let’s hear more from Dr Syal: “Emma and Tiffany are dedicated leaders who became Downsview ambassadors. During the April break, they participated in the Junior Robotics Camp. They were responsible for mentoring grade 4 and grade 5 students. Emma and Tiffany are members of Downsview Robotic team. Tiffany has been a member of the team for the past three years. As a member, she held many different roles: driver, designer, and scout. Emma is a newcomer to Robotics, but she has quickly managed to establish herself as the leader. While in my grade 10 science class, they diligently worked to get their assignments completed, and they knew when to ask for support. Emma and Tiffany are exceptional young ladies who are both smart and kind. I am glad they are part of the Downsview family. I wish them luck with future endeavours.”
Emma, Tiffany, we all look forward to the days when we can be back together. You both demonstrate how much we can achieve apart; just imagine the future, together. Thank you for inspiring us and thank you for your leadership. Congratulations once again on your wins as Students of the Week.
