During Sydney’s five years at Garibaldi, she embraced all the school has to offer. She performed in five years of theatre productions, including roles in Spamalot and Mean Girls, as well as lead roles in Grease and Breakfast Club this year. Sydney was also a mentor to each new generation of theatre students who arrived at Garibaldi.

Academically, she is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Certificate student who has been on the honour roll every year since Grade 8 as well a receiving Excellence in many subject areas.

Sydney is also a valuable member of the school community, having been part of our Student Action Team as well as a key member of the 2015-16 grad committee which fundraised for the 2016 Dry Grad. Sydney was also nominated by her classmates to be the 2016 Garibaldi valedictorian. Her energy and enthusiasm will serve her well as she embarks on a university degree at SFU in French, English and education.

About Leaders of Tomorrow

The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (SD42) has teamed up with the Maple Ridge News to celebrate local students who are making a difference at school and in the community. Elementary and secondary students featured as Leaders of Tomorrow were picked by their principals for making positive achievements in academics, sports, arts and community involvement.

The list is just a sample of outstanding students in the school district selected by their school during the 2015/16 school year – there are many others  who were equally deserving of recognition for their exemplary achievements both inside and outside the classroom. ?

Every Tuesday throughout the school year, SD42 will profile a student selected as one of the 2016 Leaders of Tomorrow.
