Virtual Alumni Panel
On February 11, Grammar hosted an Alumni Panel for the Class of 2021. This panel discussion had recent Grammar Alumni as speakers from various universities and programs.
Simon Law '17, Queen's University, Engineering
Masa Sweiden '17, McGill University, Commerce
Katie Waller '18, Mount Allison, Business and Psychology
Dimitra Tsimiklis '18, Dalhousie University, Science
Onika Drabble '19, Dalhousie University, Engineering
Arthur Huang '20, Queen's University, Commerce
Each alumnus introduced themselves and then spoke about various university topics to the Grade 12 students. Topics included: attending university during a pandemic, balancing academics with other commitments, the benefits of a Grammar education, the importance of getting involved in clubs, sports, and even the value of sleep!
Dimitra was appreciative to be asking to share her experiences. “These events are so important as they allow us the opportunity to share our experiences and advice with graduating classes. I am always happy to help a student navigate their next steps and reach their goals/full potential.”
The panel helped these soon to be Grammar grads learn more about what to expect from university life as they are eagerly waiting to hear about their acceptances.
