During her three years at Bishop Grandin, Molly was a member of both the Extended French and Advanced Placement programs. She has been on the honor roll each of her high school semesters and was the winner of the Etude Sociales 10 and English 20-1 awards. Molly also spent six weeks last summer working at the Sheldon Chumir Health Center.
In addition to her studies, Molly is a member of our Senior Field Hockey Team and a Representative of the U16 Alberta Field Hockey Team. She also works as a child care assistant for autistic children and finds time to volunteer for the Crohn’s & Colitis Walk/Run and the Inn from the Cold program at St. Bonaventure Church.
Molly plans to study Human Kinetics at the Kelowna campus of the University of British Columbia. We wish her all the best in her future studies!
By request of the Board of Trustees, we are sharing this letter to parents that speaks to the 2015 Provincial Budget. This letter and more information about the budget will be posted on the district website at: http://www.cssd.ab.ca/about-us/district-governance/budget/
Our school council meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 30th at 6:30pm in the conference room. At this time, we will watch a video message from our Chief Superintendent Gary Strother and Principal Miller will be available to answer any questions that you may have.
This photo is of two very special citizens of Bishop Grandin who also happen to be friends. Their good works and leadership of our school combined with their ambitious plans for the future have been recognized by our school in their nominations for two different national awards. They both are Advanced Placement students who have consistently performed in the top 5% of their Gr. 12 graduating class.
Pictured left: Bishop Grandin High School’s nominee for the Schulich Leader Award: Oladunni Olagundoye (Dunni).
Dunni and her family came to Canada two and half years ago. Ms. Olagundoye has proven to be a stellar leader as a member of both student council and social justice. Dunni is also a key leader on the Yearbook club. Outside of our school, Dunni can be found as a weekly volunteer with the Jesus Loves You Society serving dinner and providing child care for families in crisis. This week, Dunni is completing her eighteenth birthday fundraiser bottle drive for youth. She is raising funds for youth shelters in the city and has approached staff and students to donate their recyclables (she even picks up at your home) to assist her with her goal of 1800 bottles (she surpassed this goal easily ). Last summer, Ms. Olagundoye impressed her supervisors during her medical youth internship because of her thirst for knowledge and her positive nature. It is no surprise that this talented young lady is pursuing a nursing degree next year.
Pictured right: Bishop Grandin High School’s nominee for the Loran Scholars Award: Kaitlyn Tan
Kaitlyn has been a very busy girl since starting high school. She is very active in the Social Justice Club as well as Speech Club. Kaitlyn also assists the Robotics team by volunteering her time to assist with public relations including fundraising for the team. When Kaitlyn realized that she did not know half of the youth in her church and that the youth felt isolated due to language barriers, she reached out to them and the numbers in the church youth group is growing thanks to her determination to include everyone. Kaitlyn is a volunteer visitor at a local hospital and she has a special place in her heart for the elderly, especially those facing the end of life. As Kaitlyn has said, “I want people to know that the community has not forgotten about them. For most patients especially, a sense of community is the final closure that gives them peace.” Kaitlyn plans to start a degree in neuroscience next year. Congratulations to both of these fine citizens of our school.
