When Katie started her Havergal journey in Grade 4, she was excited for all of the co-curricular opportunities the school offered. As a Junior School student, she joined the soccer, track and field, cross country and hockey teams and participated in clubs such as chess, watercolouring, math, journalism, drama and choir. In the Middle School, she was involved in the Havergal Youth Theatre group, sang in the Middle School Choir and participated in clubs focused on coding and science. She joined Havergal’s Model United Nations (MUN) group in Grade 8 and became a committed and enthusiastic member throughout her Upper School years. “I always had such a great time at MUN conferences because I’m interested in politics and the people were so great,” she says. “But it was my experiences singing with the choirs that helped me become who I am today because of the confidence I gained.”
By Senior School, Katie was involved in all of theatrical plays and choirs, played on the soccer and curling teams and was elected as Arts Prefect in her Grade 12 year. “I should have dropped something, but I loved it all,” she recounts. After graduating from Havergal, Katie headed off to Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia to study History and Political Science.
