Grade 11

Welcome back Juniors!

Juniors, welcome back to another school year and a special welcome to our new students joining the Class of 2020!
My name is Ms. Waldock and in addition to teaching High School Mathematics, I am your Grade Level Coordinator (GLC) for another two years. Together with Pari, Sandro, Joaquin, Amaya, and David, your elected Council, and your team of Homeroom Advisors we will work to make your Grade 11 experience one to remember. There is a lot to look forward to this year. This is a new and exciting journey for all of us and together we will overcome the challenges and celebrate the successes as a grade-level.
The Class of 2020 is filled with passionate, creative, and active students and I am sure that we will continue to build on our fantastic high school record. Look forward to an exciting start to the year with BOB, plenty of sporting events to celebrate, a plethora of creative endeavors to enjoy and more meaningful Saturday Services with our partner Papaya Academy. To wrap it all up we have our first high school Prom to look forward to. There will be multiple opportunities for you to build school spirit, become more connected as a Batch and explore your own individual interests. Please take any chance you can to get as much as possible out of your high school experience.

I look forward to seeing you all in classes and assemblies and at many school events.  If you have any questions or comments please do email me at

Grade 11 GLC (Grade Level Coordinator)
