WELCOME BACK FROM YOUR GEx EXPEDITIONS!
BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR GRADS 2018
Congratulations to our 2018 graduands on becoming official “graduates” this weekend and hope your Convocation and Grad Ball were spectacular!
HOW DID OUR GRADS FIND THEIR FIT?
Check out the recent newsletter post to find out where our grads are going next year…
What makes a university ‘the one’? How do you choose between acceptances? These are the questions many high school students grapple with as they make decisions about where to apply and which offer to accept. We met with our grads to hear their perspective on the decision-making process. They emphasised the importance of understanding individual priorities because ultimately, its all about finding the right fit.
Student #Leadership 2018-2019 Follow-Up
Some of you may have been wondering when you’ll find out about your applications for major student leadership in the Upper School 2018 2019. Due to the important changes being made in Grade 12 leadership, we have taken longer than usual to go through student applications and get feedback to you regarding candidates selection
Except for a few cases most major leadership opportunities have not been adressed yet. Many groups are still getting out communications and some are even beginning to do their interviews. If you have not heard back from groups at this point you should hear back within the next few weeks before the end of school. Here’s the information that I have received so far regarding the status of leadership applications for different teams. If you can’t remember what the teams are all about please click here to read about them in detail: Senior School Leadership Overviews and Middle School Overviews:
G7-12 HeadsUp: A communication email has been sent out to student applicants and follow up invitations to meet have been made. If you have not received this communication, but you’re interested in joining this team, please contact Ms Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
G10-12 Student Voice: Communications to student applicants have been made and decisions about selections have been shared. Please contact Dr Tabet if you have questions.
G-12 Arts Council: Communications to student applicants are coming soon! Please contact Mr Kristen if you have questions at email@example.com.
G7-11 MSAC/SSAC Service Action Council: Decisions are in process and communications to student applicants are coming soon! Please contact Ms Roy (MSAC) or Mr Wilson (SSAC) if you have questions.
G7-12 House Leadership/Athletics Council: Decisions are in process and will be communicated soon. Please contact Mr Leduc if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
G7-9 SpeakUp (Student Voice): Communications to student applicants are coming soon! Please contact Ms Moore if you have questions.
G9-12 Global Nomads: Communications to student applicants are coming soon! Please contact Mr Wilson if you have questions.
G7-9 Middle School Ambassadors: Communications to student applicants are coming soon! Please contact Ms Moore if you have questions.
G12 Board: This is a new G12 leadership team that is emerging as a replacement of the antiquated prefect system. G11s should consult communications from Ms. Nolan Wood regarding this process and contact her if you have any questions.
If you are not interested or ready to take on such a major role, please note there are always numerous opportunities throughout the year to get engaged in “learning to lead” with different levels of commitment via school-based clubs and other initiatives within and beyond Mulgrave. Check out other opportunities shared in assemblies, emails, newsletters, announcements, and via posts in TMC and SOGO. Students can also apply to “start up” their own initiatives through the StartUp Forum. Please talk to the Faculty Advisors for each leadership team to find out more or if you need greater support or details about leadership or the application process. If you require more information about the general leadership application, please contact Antony Wilson, Head of Global Engagement and Service Learning, at email@example.com. Good luck to all candidates!

Can’t find a club you are interested in? Got a great idea for an Upper School Mulgrave club, service initiative, community activity, fundraiser, awareness campaign, or cause to support at Mulgrave and beyond? Make your pitch to the StartUp Forum!
The StartUp Forum replaces the Mulgrave Dragon’s Den (The Den) format from previous years. The forum is made up of a student-led panel drawn from a range of leadership teams and grades, facilitated by SAC (the Service Action Council). This team will review all new school, citizenship, service, social good or fundraising proposals by students and make decisions on whether or in what way the pitch moves forward with possible support, resources and opportunities. They also decide on the scope and impact on school.
