Branksome Hall Student Advocates for Women in STEM
“It’s not about intelligence, it’s about believing you can,” says Zainab Azim, a Grade 12 student at Branksome Hall. Zainab has become a fierce advocate for the next generation of young women to pursue their passions and get involved in STEM. In reflecting on the lower participation rates of women and girls in the field, she notes, “It’s not because women aren’t smart enough, it’s the cultural norms we have created…”

Brentwood College School Field Hockey
This season, field hockey had more of an on-campus profile thanks to the donation of the artificial turf by a former player and her family. This enabled us to train occasionally at the school and play 7-aside interhouse matches. The majority of our games and training, however, were on Duncan’s turfs alongside the 1st X1. As a result, some of our players graduated to that team and we acquired Development team players to replace them.

Acts of Kindness QMS Junior School
The other afternoon when I returned to my office, I was surprised to find a little goodie bag with a tag attached that said, “With Love, From Elf.” Inside the goodie bag, I found some ginger snaps and a candy cane. A heart-shaped card was also enclosed with a note that read “I like you!” Based on reports from witnesses around the school, apparently, a small band of elves wearing red and green elf hats and QMS uniforms had been popping in and out of various buildings dropping off treats and cards. If the other recipients were anything like me, I am sure they found the bag of treats and the note to be a true pick-me-up and a thoughtful gesture at this busy time of year.

Jack Chapter: #BeThere Initiative
It was an awesome day at our #BeThere initiative. This initiative really highlighted the importance of being an ally in relation to people struggling with mental health and people in the LGBTQ+ community or both. Research has shown that LGBTQ+ people have higher rates of mental health challenges because of societal prejudice, verbal/physical abuse from peers, the use of derogatory terms, and/or institutional discrimination.

Other constraints included building the bridge at least one inch tall, and having the planks across the bridge close enough that a penny wouldn’t fall through.
