  • Our Under-Appreciated Parents

    Alexandrea Gray, Grade 12

    As many of you might know, I’m from a very, very small farming community near the town of Brownlee, Saskatchewan with a population of about 50 – that is if I actually lived in the small town… which I don’t, so I guess most of you would see it as the Middle-of-Nowhere, Saskatchewan, but I just see it as home.

  • Thank You for the Gift of Giving

    By Olivier Daniel, Grade 11
    My parents have always preached the importance of giving. Giving love, giving kindness, giving joy, giving money, just giving in general. They believe that giving is the most satisfying and humbling act that any human being can do. As a child, I always wondered how giving could bring you joy and satisfaction? I always wondered what my Dad meant when he says: “Giving is part of the circle of life. A circle where one action leads to another.” I was always told that the more you give, the more you will receive.

    Perfection is Not a Solo Project

    By Rina Takahashi, Grade 12
    I think everyone has their own definition of perfect. The general definition of perfect is having all the required or desirable elements, qualities or characteristics; to be as good as it is possible to be. From this definition, I am guessing most of the people who are sitting here are not perfect.
