It’s been an unusual year for graduating classes of 2020, who have been home schooling since March. As student’s graduate and prepare for their future, Jaymie Heller, Valedictorian from Toronto Prep School leaves an encouraging message to the graduates of 2020.
“I would like to wish a huge congratulations to my fellow graduates. I am truly grateful to have had the chance to share my final two years of high school with such an exceptional group of individuals. Every one of you should be so proud of all that you have accomplished at TPS, no matter how long you have been here. I want to thank all the teachers for always providing me with the utmost support, whether it be academically or personally. I would also like to give a huge thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Tsimikalis for creating such an incredible place where I was fortunate enough to build relationships that will last me a lifetime.
Whether you took part in a sports team, a club, or the annual trips to Wahanowin, I hope that when you look back on these memories that they will make you smile. The circumstances under which our senior year is ending are less than ideal; however, through it all, our continued hard work shapes and reflects the TPS spirit. The perseverance we have demonstrated under these unforeseen circumstances shapes our character. And I can say with steadfast confidence, that through the valuable lessons we have learned at TPS, we will all do extraordinary things in the future. I cannot wait to see you all at our, to be scheduled, graduation ceremony where we will be able to celebrate our accomplishments the right way. Until that time, I wish you all continued health and safety.
Congrats! We did it!”
