Cameron D.


Downsview, for the week of October 15th, your Student of the Week is Cameron D.
Cameron is in the eleventh grade at Downsview.

When Cameron was nominated for a position as Student Leader in May, he was surprised.  The rest of us, however, were not. From Ms de Jersey: “Cameron has something special and Ms Alli, Mr Bovey and I have borne witness to his skills. Sick for several days before the Forest Valley trip, Cameron arrived, and pulled out his best, helping us get attention in a crowded cafeteria, leading an initially hesitant group, sticking with them as they found their way. Cameron is a ‘process’ guy – he knows that even with its challenges, the journey is just as interesting as the destination. Cameron is, in short, a delightful human being.”

Let’s hear from DSS staff as they sing your praises, Cameron. First, from Mr MacDonald: “Cameron always has a positive attitude about learning. He eagerly took on a leadership role at Forest Valley in September. He is also an incredible cornet player who has had multiple solos throughout his high school musical career.”

Ms Randhawa adds: “Cameron was a pleasure to teach last semester. He was helpful and respectful to his peers. Keep it up!” Mr Syal says: “Cameron is a member of the Robotics Team. He played the role of human player. His enthusiasm led us to win many games. He is always positive and tries to encourage other members to do better.” Ms Khona has these words: Cameron always has a positive attitude and is willing to give anyone a helping hand who needs one. Cameron always has a smile on his face. He is willing to try and put in the effort needed to be successful.”

Finally, this, from Mr Wallace: “Cameron is enthusiasm. The things he loves, he loves! Get the guy near a robot and man, watch him go. And the man writes. Thousands, tens of thousands of words. Sci-fi, man. You gotta read his stuff. Oh, and did I say he was kind and collegial and makes anyone comfortable?”

Cameron, we trust that you are feeling the love – you have earned it. We value your kind and thoughtful leadership, and we value your demonstration of dedication and passion. Thank you, Cameron, and congratulations on your win as Student of the Week.
