The other day I went to my old high school, Saunders Secondary School. I went in to Saunders because I was selling my Christmas cards. Lots of people bought them.
I really like the people at Saunders. It’s a great high school. While I was visiting, I got to see some of my old teachers. They are all really great people.
Saunders has a Best Buddies program. I was part of this when I was at Saunders. Best Buddies is a program where students with an intellectual disability are partnered with other students. Sometimes, you have lunch with your best buddy or sometimes you do other things in the school. Sometimes you do things outside of school with your best buddy. When I was at Saunders, there were so many students that wanted to participate, that we all had two best buddies.
Every year, Saunders has a Cancer Campaign. They raise lots and lots of money to help fight cancer. Jamie Clark is the teacher who organizes the campaign. When I was visiting the school, he had a Movember mustache but here is the funny thing. He has a bald head but he grew a “mustache” on the back of his head. He called it his back ‘stache.
When I was at Saunders, I was voted Prom Queen and my boyfriend Scott was Prom King. It was a fun night and there was lots of dancing. It was one of the best nights of my life, so far. That was in 2011 and that was the year of my graduation. That was very exciting, too. I won the Jane O’Connor Award for Achievement.
