On The Big Stage
Our students haven’t just stayed in the classroom. Many of them have taken the skills we teach and brought them to a bigger stage, sharing their voice and ideas with the world. Under the guidance of our teachers, these students have done everything from winning national contests, to speaking at conferences as renowned as TEDx Stanley Park. These kids have undeniably done incredible things, and we’re proud to have played a part in giving them the skills they need to make an impact on the world around them.
Jenny, 11, gave a speech at TEDxStanleyPark 2018, one of the largest TEDx conferences around the world. Being only in sixth grade, she became the youngest speaker to ever speak at this event. She showed confidence, skill, and energy that won over the audience easily, and allowed her to deliver a compelling presentation, that received multiple rounds of applause.
In June 2021, a number of our students took to the big stage at TEDxYouth@GranvilleIsland. Sharing messages on everything from learning, to family, to identity, and even digging a snow cave, their talks inspire, inform, and entertain in equal measure, take a look below!
