Elmwood was well represented at the Capital Region Musicfest and our musicians came away with outstanding commendations. Our 7 and 8 Concert Bands each earned silver awards and the Senior Concert Band was unanimously awarded gold for their musical and mature performance by the panel of judges. In addition, a number of Elmwood musicians have been named to the Eastern Ontario Elementary Honour Band for 2018: Naila Moloo, Madighan Ryan, Sophia Moloo, Serena Chen, Bianca Ruta, Ariana Kubelik, Zahra Robertson and Sonja Swettenham. Congratulations to our musicians and their conductor, Elmwood Director of Music Cristien Lyons.
International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day in Elmwood’s Senior School was marked with a careers conference featuring a wide range of inspiring female speakers, including Catherine Clark, Stacey Bafi-Yeboa, Victoria Lennox, Jessika-Kina Ouimet, Cathy Imbriglio, Vicky Iverson, Jennifer Francis and Audrey Grandmaison. In the Middle School, we held our first-ever Elmwood Dragons’ Den! After much deliberation, the pitch by Nicole Watt and Emelyn Lantos was deemed victorious! And thanks to our esteemed “Dragons”: Melissa Smith, Krista Norris, Susy Imbriglio, Charlotte Burke and Kate Karn. Thanks also to StartUp Canada for helping us make this a day to remember!
