To the Saint Paul’s Community,  

First, we want to thank you for your overwhelming support during an extensive campaign, electing us to be your student council President and Vice President for this school year. Our first message to all of you at the school is that we will be working hard to ensure that we have the most fun and meaningful year possible.   

COVID-19 has been a new experience for all of us, young and old, and as we look forward to more normalcy in our near future, we want to ensure that the true meaning of being a Saint Paul’s student is brought back. This includes having many activities and opportunities that those of us in grade 12 were able to see in our grade 9 year, such as a wide variety of clubs, as well as smaller, more day-to-day things such as those intense ping pong matches in the student link.   

At the moment, we are working towards forming our full student council, and once that is finalized, we will have all the resources and opportunities we need to hit the ground running. The ideas brought to you by our campaign are some of our top priorities, and we promise you, as we did during our campaign, that we will work diligently to have as many of these ideas and opportunities brought into action at our school.  

Again, we want to encourage all of you to get involved with the activities that your brothers, educators, and volunteers have worked hard to create for you. During our campaign, we talked about the 8:30-3:15 student, who only comes to Saint Paul’s for their classes, and does nothing more. While there is nothing wrong with that approach to the school, we believe that in order to gain the true Saint Paul’s experience, it is crucial to get out of your comfort zone, and get involved in activities and programs that could become the things you look forward to most in your daily lives.   

Finally, we want to let you guys know that we are approachable, so if you have any questions to ask us, or you have something to say, please find us around the school or send us a message. Thank you all again for your support, and we hope to have an outstanding school year with you all.
