We hosted a fantastic Going-Away Celebration for students leaving to attend school abroad in the coming Fall semester. Approximately 250 parents and students filed into the glamorous Les Ambassadeurs Ballroom on the 18th floor of the Hilton Kingston hotel, and we began with a prayer by Mrs. Bramwell-Riley. We were right into the swing of things as our Master of Ceremonies Rainier Goubault; lead us through our programme smoothly. Our student speakers: Lauren and Elaina Chai were extremely impressive. As past students of the
Joan Davis Williams presented on Social Skills, encouraging us all to brush up on our social graces. She also had a booth at the back of the room for students interested in enrolling in Etiquette classes.
The Bank of Nova Scotia and The Math Clinic also had booths at the back of the room; they spoke to how useful the services they provide are and gave out contact information for further consultation.
We were thoroughly entertained by the musical genius of Joshua and Jhenelle, serenading us with their duet on the violin. Master violinist Joshua Yap serenaded us with his two solo performances.
Our director, Mrs. Bramwell-Riley delivered her Farewell Speech to the outgoing students. She also spoke about the “College Checklist”, which are the list of items she thinks students need to live comfortably aboard. After her presentation, we were lead into our awards ceremony, which included prizes for both our students and parents.
Shauna Myers delivered the Vote of Thanks and led us into our Music and Food Festival Bash, where students and parents mingled among themselves.
P.S. If you weren't at the Farewell Ceremony please come into the office to pick up a "College Checklist" handout.
