Meet Coral Holmes. She is currently in Grade 6 French Immersion at Laity View Elementary (2018/19).
This year, Coral has been very active with Student Leadership, Aboriginal Student Leadership, the school choir and has worked as a library helper and lunch monitor. Coral also enjoyed participating in Ignite this year and Book Fest for the past two years.
Currently, Coral is working with the Aboriginal Leadership Team on a presentation of the Seven Sacred Teachings. She is busy preparing the script that the team will use when presenting to other students in the school from K to Grade 7.
Outside of school, Coral enjoys both indoor and outdoor rock climbing with her friends and family. She is also a certified babysitter and often looks after her younger cousins. Coral hopes to continue participating in leadership activities next year and in high school.
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 2018/19 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 2019 Leaders of Tomorrow.
