WWS Spotlight

A way to meet our school community

Maya Coleman, WWS student since Kindergarten, now in Grade 7

You’ve been a student at WWS for a long time; what is your favourite part of school?
Everything! I like my classes and have a lot of fun. I also really like all my teachers, they are good at their job.

What has been your favourite block this year?
I enjoyed the creative writing block and am most proud of the two poems that I wrote. I also like drama and we are in our play block right now. Our play is tonight and I am playing the 2nd senator’s wife as well as the Grand Duchess. (Note: Maya’s poem “Autumn Passing” is featured in the photos below).

Next year you are officially a high school student. Are you excited about that?
Yes, I am super excited. I will get to hang out more with my brother who will be in Grade 10. I am also excited for all the camping trips, the opportunity to play guitar in music class and also continuing to do class plays.

What would you tell a prospective student looking at joining your class?
We welcome new people. It’s nice having people from different backgrounds and cultures in our school. We all really like to learn and have fun in our classes.

Thank you Maya!
