Gr. 12 – Christina

Since high school, she has been making continuous progress and made remarkable achievements in many aspects.
Out of all the courses, Christina likes new media the most. Each term, the teacher will provide a wide range of topics. Students are given a lot of freedom to explore and study a particular sub-topic that they are interested in. Since students of all three grades will take the same course at the same time, they will all be mixed and put into groups to study the topic together. This arrangement allows students of different grades to learn from each other and develop teamwork and communication skills. This learning experience allows Christina to understand the importance of cooperation.
In her spare time, Christina plays the flute and piano to relieve her pressure. “Playing flute helps me practice hand-eye coordination and the speed of my fingers,” she says. Her performance ensemble at the 2021 graduation ceremony was stunning and spectacular.

When she was in G10, she served as the representative of G10. In G11, she served as the Secretary of G11. This year, she serves as the president of the student council. With the help of other members in the student council, she has organized many engaging, meaningful activities, which includes the mini games in the Halloween and Christmas events.
