Student Council President's Final Blog June 17th
Hey everyone! As some of you may know, this will be my final blog post before I leave Saint Teresa of Calcutta Catholic School. I, along with my fellow grade eights, will graduating this Tuesday and entering into high school.
I honestly don’t know what to say except thank you. I really don’t know who I’d be without this community. A great deal of my role-models came from this school. From the friendly and cool parent volunteers, to the best principal in Canada, Mr. Colella, to my inspiring teachers.
I still remember my first day of school. I had to introduce myself to the school and I was too nervous to do so, so my sister had to do it for me. I’m pretty sure I cried after she left me in the classroom. Though from that moment, I was welcomed into the warmth of the Mother Teresa community. I was still anxious, but there were nice students swarming me and welcoming me the minute I stepped in. From then on, I decided that school isn’t all that bad. Time skip to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, we have a new principal, new name, new uniforms. I was a bit confused about the name change, but hey, this new principal seems pretty cool so it can’t be anything bad, right? Slowly, I crawled out of my shell, getting to personally know the members of the community I had become a part of. I think the spirit of the school had only become stronger as I slowly got to know everyone. Another time skip to Saint Teresa of Calcutta. If anything, the warm community that had welcomed me on my first day had grown tenfold thanks to the amazing teachers that had come and went, the just as amazing ones who are still with us today, to the students new and old and their parents, and last but not least, Mr. Colella, a principal I’m extremely proud of graduating with.
I can’t even put into words how thankful I am for the people who welcomed me into their community and how they continue to welcome people like me with open arms. Even though I may be resigning as the student council president of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, I will always remember the people in this school from past and present who inspired, supported, and pushed me to the person I am today.
