- What achievement are you most proud of on your Term 1 report? WHY?
I am most proud of the 7 that I achieved in Geography, as I had worked and studied hard and now have been rewarded by quantitative results.
- What ‘setback’ have you experienced this term? How has this been a positive challenge?
This term i have had an extremely full schedule. I have been participating, in soccer, basketball, out of school rugby, jazz band, and chamber choir. All of these commitments have made my week very busy, and as a result of this I have been able to manage my time very efficiently. Due to my full schedule, I have had little time to do school work, so in the little time that I have had, I am able to work efficiently which in turn has made me more independent and able to manage time well.
- What strategies did you use in Term 1 to understand difficult concepts in class?
To understand some more ‘difficult’ class concepts, I would often take detailed notes in class, and then when I went home or had time to review, I would reread these notes, specifically on the hard concepts so that they would stay in my mind.
- Does your report illustrate progress in one of your ‘Start of the Year Goals?’ How?
For one of my start of year goals, I decided to strive to get all 5’s and at least 2-3 6’s in all of my courses. I did achieve this, but now that I understand what it takes to achieve this level, I am very confident that I can further increase my grades.
- Does your report illustrate your areas of passion?
This report card doesn’t exactly illustrate any areas of my passion, but it does display some of the progression of my academic skills.
- Were you surprised by anything on your Report Card? Why?
I wasn’t too surprised by anything on my report card, but upon comparing some grades with other students in some specific classes, I was somewhat confused on some marks in relation to some of my peers.

What are your University/Career aspirations? Are your Academic and CAS accomplishments supporting your post-secondary goals?
Currently, I am interested in going into Business in university, however with a creative or writing minor. There some very interesting programs in both Ryerson and Western that I have looked at that seem to be promising.
