Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of May 25, 2021
Downsview, for the week of May 24th, your Student of the Week is Jamal B.
Jamal is in the twelfth grade; he will graduate soon.
Jamal has been a vital part of the Downsview family, and his nominators can attest to his involvement and his fine character. Let’s hear first from Mr Hum: “Jamal is a well rounded young man with a very bright future ahead of him. In class, Jamal is engaged and invested in the Kinesiology course. He’s full of curious questions and soaks up the content like a sponge. I’m not surprised that he has locked down multiple offers for universities in the kinesiology program and is in the exciting process of deciding where to start his post secondary education. Jamal is not only invested in his academics but once upon a time before the pandemic, he was part of our football program. Jamal sees the benefits of extra curriculars and enjoys participating in many sports, especially basketball and football. Jamal is truly a well rounded individual. As Jamal has his post secondary career in sight, we are all going to miss his relaxed, friendly, care-free demeanour when he departs Downsview. We are rooting for you Jamal and can’t wait to see what impact you have on the world around you. Congratulations Jamal! We’re proud of you and your accomplishments!”
And hear this, from Mr Ramnaraine: “Jamal is such a calm and polite individual. It has been a pleasure to see his growth as a young man through his participation in Downsview's Boys2Men program. As a senior student, Jamal has actively participated in the B2M program as a mentor to his younger peers. He is definitely seen as a positive role model within our school community. Congratulations Jamal!”
Finally, from Mr Lewin: “Jamal Binning has been involved in Downsview 's Boyz to Men program for over four years. He has been a positive role model for others through his humble demeanour and his commitment to excellence both within school and in the wider society. Jamal Binning plans to attend university and study Kinesiology. The sky's the limit for Jamal!”
Jamal, the good energy that you have put into your classrooms and our community is recognized. We see you, and we look forward to cheering you on as you cross the virtual stage and graduate in a month. Thank you, Jamal, and congratulations on your win as Student of the Week.
