Lab School in Professionally Speaking
In the March 2015 issue of The Ontario College of Teachers magazine, Professionally Speaking, Canadian actor Megan Follows honours the 3 elementary teachers who inspired her. All 3 are Lab School teachers. Megan honours former teachers Dee Wicks (Grade 5), Ted Hunter (Grade 6), and Dorothy Medhurst (Art). “They taught me many things, but what I cherish the most is the way they gave me the courage to use my imagination”. http://oct-oeeo.uberflip.com/i/461668-ps-march-2015 (pg. 30)
In March, Lab School Teacher/Librarian, Raadiyah Nazeem, was awarded the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the University of Guelph/Humber. This award recognizes those who have given selflessly of their time and energy through volunteer work with students, faculty, or alumni of the University.
