Working as a team, St. Mary’s College Student Council’s 14 members have shown their determination to hold events for fellow students and keep up morale for their schoolmates – either virtually or in class, while masked and socially distanced – throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week, they organized and hosted a ‘Share your Love’ theme week with daily activities for the whole student body.
“On Monday, we had ‘Share Your Love For Your School’ so we all wore school spirit wear, we did Candygrams on Tuesday, we did love song trivia, ‘Share Your Love For Comfort’ so everyone dressed down, ‘Love Bingo’ and on Friday we’re dressing in red, white and pink for Valentine’s Day,” said student council member Gracee Zagordo, speaking to SooToday.
“Throughout this year we’ve been trying to do as many activities as we can. So far we’ve done our Halloween Week with a haunted house which was COVID-conscious and still managed to get the student body involved. We also did a Spirit Week where we showed our spirit for the school and put together lots of fun events and tried to make it as normal a year as possible in regard to COVID regulations,” said student Kylie Esposito.
The APH-approved haunted house has been the favourite event for students so far in the current school year, the group said.
“The Grade 9s didn’t get the exact full experience but we did a lot for welcome week for them. The response has been pretty good for all the activities,” said student Kate Fasulo.
