Vi V.


Downsview, for the week of May 30th, your Student of the Week is Vi Vo. Vi is in the tenth grade at Downsview.

Student of the Week recipients are chosen for several reasons, but character is at the core of this award. Students of the Week put into action kindness, empathy, generosity and mindfulness. Vi has shown these qualities. Let’s hear more.

First, from Mr Lim: “On a day to day basis, Vi has always worked very hard in the classroom, doing her best at everything she tries. However, she also demonstrated incredible quick-thinking, mindfulness, and confidence recently in a significant crisis. Absolutely, she is a Student of the Week!”

Mr Lewin says: “Vi  Vo is an honour roll student who is doing extremely well in school.  She has a positive attitude towards her studies and she is determined to make a positive difference in the lives of others. We are so proud of all that you have accomplished.  Keep up the superlative work!”

Ms Palombi has this to say: “I had the pleasure of working with Vi in our Learning Strategies class. I am not surprised that she is the Student of the Week. Vi always came to class with a smile on her face and a positive attitude. She was always willing to try new activities, like our weekly yoga and encouraged everyone to participate as well. Vi was definitely the glue to our class. She is hard-working and focused and will no doubt achieve her goals. Congratulations, Vi, you earned it!”

And, finally, from Ms Lee: “Vi brings it. She brings an enthusiastic attitude to learning and trying new things. She brings a great energy to the classroom. She brings people together and she brings her authentic self. I had the privilege of teaching Vi last semester and it was fun to see her express her creativity. She demonstrated leadership by helping her peers and sharing ideas so everyone could bring their ideas to life. You may have seen her work in the display case on the second floor. SO good! Congratulations Vi. You've got a bright future ahead of you and I can't wait to see it unfold.”

Vi, the votes are in. While your quick-thinking and empathetic reaction in a crisis situation secured your nomination for this award, your enthusiastic engagement drove your nomination home. We value your leadership, Vi, and are thrilled to see you represent Downsview as our Student of the Week.
