CONGRATULATE AND WISH STUDENTS GRADUATING THIS JUNE
YU (TONY) TAE JUN
of our graduating students, Rebecca has contributed to
our newsletter with an inspiring piece on her experience
in the Pembina Trails School Division this year.
seems yesterday, when I left Bologna 's airport to start
this wonderful experience?almost ten months are already
past, incredibly fast.
all this time you get used to pretty much everything,
every little difference that makes this place so particular
at my eyes and it's difficult to think that it's almost
over; I have to go back and change my habits again.
I look back, I see all the moments that made me happy,
changing and enriching me.
from my ?Canadian family?, whom helped me since the beginning,
accepting and loving me as part of their family, and are
always there for me.
there are my friends, people that I learnt to know in
just few months and became really important for me, sharing
laughs, parties?the ones that lived and are living every
single moment of this special adventure with me.
is the school, with all the strangest activities, that
make it a fun, enjoyable place; I really like how it's
organized and how the atmosphere is warm and familiar,
even between teachers and students.
looking forward to graduate in here in June, because it
will be another exciting experience that we don't have
in Italy .
amazing for me to be able to live this extraordinary journey,
and to call Winnipeg my ?second home?.
a safe and enjoyable summer!
