Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of May 23rd, 2022
Downsview, for the week of May 23rd, your Student of the Week is Anjolaoluwa (Mary) Adegbokun. Mary is in the ninth grade at Downsview.
Let’s get right to the praise for this up-and-coming Downsview leader. First, from Mr do Carmo: “I have the pleasure of Mary's presence in my grade 9 Exploring Technologies class. Her unassuming and light-hearted characteristics are a great addition to any class as she deals well with teachers and classmates alike. She is always kind and pleasant to others. As for her class work, she seems to do this with ease and enjoyment with excellent results. You may have heard me say this a few times about successful students and I will say it again about Mary. One of the things that make her so successful is that she asks for clarification and assistance when necessary. Mary also is quite generous with assisting other students with their inquiries about class work. Great job Mary, keep up the great work and the awesome attitude.”
Hear this, from Mr Lewin: “Anjolaoluwa Adegbokun is an outstanding leader who is currently in Downsview’s Africentric program. She is an honour roll student who is committed to achieving excellence both within the school and in the larger society. She is determined to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Anjolaoluwa is a proud ambassador for Downsview’s Africentric program. Recently, she helped to facilitate a panel discussion based on the theme of Black Brilliance in STEM. Anjolaoluwa, we are so proud of all that you have accomplished. Your potential is limitless.”
Mr Pasian adds: “Mary is a hardworking, conscientious student. She is polite and always willing to help students out with their homework. She did extremely well in mathematics last semester.”
From Ms D’Andrea: “Mary was previously in the dance section of the integrated arts course. She has some real talent and it was such a pleasure to teach her. I hope to see her in future dance classes! Way to go Mary!!”
And, just for a change, we have some praise from Remi, Mary’s classmate, and a Student of the Week recipient herself. She says: “Mary is in my gym class and she’s always ready to just bounce up to whatever we do in class. Although sometimes she can act lazy if you give her words of encouragement she’ll always do what she’s supposed to do. It’s fun playing basketball with her. We sometimes play without the rules which is sometimes fun. Mary is a good student, good athlete and honour roll student.”
From Ms Persaud: “I've had the pleasure of getting to know Mary since the beginning of second semester in grade 9 Africentric English, and it has been and continues to be an absolute pleasure! In so many ways, Mary is an exemplary student and young person. She is bright and determined and heeds advice to improve and be better. In addition, she always accepts a new task with enthusiasm and confidence. Congratulations Mary on earning Student of the Week honours. I am excited to see all the great accomplishments your future holds and hope to continue to be part of your journey here at Downsview in some capacity.”
Mary, you heard it here. In less than a year at Downsview, you have made an impression. We look forward to being part of your continued journey at Downsview. Congratulations, Mary - you are our Student of the Week.
