Get your Easter Egg-Grams! Support #UNICEF

In celebration of Easter, UNICEF Club will be selling Golden Egg-grams to help combat childhood malnutrition in the Central African Republic.

They will be sold at the cafeteria every recess and lunch from April 10-16. The egg-grams contain chocolates and gummies and there will be two sizes of eggs which you can choose from: a small eggwill be $2 and a large egg (DOUBLE the candy of the small one) will be $4. You can choose to either buy it and take it with you right away or we can deliver it, which will happen next Tuesday during homeroom time. Bunny cards will also be provided for you to write any greetings you would like for that special someone. 

MOREOVER…

If you buy one or more small/large egg, you will be entered into a draw where you will have a chance of winning TWO bags of smarties and a BIG chocolate bunny.

MULGRAVE #Do1Give Apr 17 #TagUrIt
Wednesday, April 17 is Do1Give Day at Mulgrave! This is the first year we’re participating in this event created by 365give and the West Vancouver Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Council. The event has now expanded to include schools across BC. Your HeadsUp and Global Nomads are sponsoring the event, spearheaded by Pegah A G12.
The idea is for everyone to do one small act of kindness for others or for the environment (a “give”) on April 17. There will be a poster outside the cafeteria where you can put up one sticky note for every give you do. Be sure to share your gives using #TagUrIt and #Do1Give!

Our focus this year is on recycling. We’ll be having 2 special bins from Hanks Christmas Glitter in the cafeteria on April 17 where you can dispose of refundables (bottles, cans, etc.) during recess and lunch. Feel free to bring your own refundables from home too. Money from the refundables will be used to provide financial support for the less fortunate in our local communities, which includes the homeless. Each item added counts as a give.

This event supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals: Responsible Consumption and Good Health and Well-Being!

Happy giving!
Pegah Abyaneh | HeadsUp / Global Nomads

 

 

Apply for Student #Leadership 2019-2020

Please click here for next year’s student leadership applications. Read below for more details:


Hey G7-11s:

“Leadership is everybody’s business” and, once again, it’s that time of year to make leadership your business by applying for a major leadership opportunity in the Upper School next year. This year, rather than write responses to questions on the Google Form application, students applying for G7-12 major student leadership roles for the 2019-2020 school year only need to submit their MY Passport link. The expectation is your Passport posts and reflections which you have completed this year should demonstrate your background, experiences and demonstrated leadership or leadership potential appropriate to the role you have applied for.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR MAJOR LEADERSHIP WITH MY PASSPORT?

You will be asked to submit your MY Passport link in the application form below. If you have been keeping up with your posts and reflections and getting engaged in initiatives across the Passport domains inside or outside school, your application material should already be there for review and no additional work would be required by you. You should make sure any posts in which you reflect on leadership goals, experiences, actions and outcomes are categorized as “leadership” so application review teams can find your Passport leadership material easily. If you have more questions or require some support with using MY Passport as an application for leadership, please come Thu Apr 4 or Thu Apr 11 to 2540 for extra help.

NOTE: G12s ONLY
The only areas that next year’s G12s can apply for in this current application package are Athletics, House Leadership, Heads Up and Global Nomads. Additional G12 leadership opportunities such as the Student Board or Grad Committee are shared via a separate application process. Grade 12s applying for a position on one of the major leadership teams need to provide a link to their SEQTA goals and CAS experiences that demonstrate their leadership or leadership potential across the Passport domains. Please speak to Ms Nolan Wood if you have any questions.

Please click the appropriate G7-11 Common Application below to apply for major Upper School student leadership in 2019-2020:

  1. Mulgrave Senior School Student Leadership Common Application for the 2019-2020 school year
  2. Mulgrave Middle School Student Leadership Common Application for the 2019-2020 school year

For an overview of all leadership opportunities for next year, please click here:

  1. Senior School Leadership Overviews
  2. Middle School Leadership Overviews

Applications are due by Mon Apr 15, 2019 by 5.00 PM

Please note students can select two leadership options on the Google form application, but the general expectation is that a student should be engaged in no more than one major leadership opportunity. There are also many other kinds of leadership opportunities at Mulgrave and beyond in athletics, arts, service, outdoor education, co-curricular clubs and more. If what you see is not exactly what you’re interested in, please check out other opportunities shared in town halls, assemblies, newsletters, announcements, and via posts on TMC.

If you have any questions about the process, please ask the faculty advisor for the team that you’re applying for or fire me an email. If you require more information about the general leadership application, please contact Antony Wilson, Head of Global Engagement and Service Learning, at awilson@mulgrave.com.

Good luck to all candidates!

WALK SO KIDS CAN TALK

On Sunday, May 5, walk to support Kids Help Phone so we can help youth feel more empowered to take on life’s challenges, big and small. Young people can talk to us about any concerns they have; sometimes, we are the first or only place they can turn to for help. Walk to ensure young people get the help they need 24/7.

Join the Mulgrave team here or make your donation today!

 

KIDS HELP PHONE
2019 marks Kids Help Phone’s 30th Anniversary — serving generations of young people on the issues that mattered to them. As a charity, we rely on donations and funds raised from the Walk so Kids Can Talk presented by BMO to help us continue to be there for youth for the next 30 years, wherever, however and whenever they need us the most.
