The Graduating Class of 2000 came out in record numbers to celebrate their 20th in May now that they could have an in-person gathering. The weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed connecting with one another in the Old Residence Building and touring the grounds.
It was a pleasure to host the Graduating Class of 2012 in July as they celebrated their 10-year reunion! Alumnae had great fun seeing old friends and connecting with Head of School, Ena Harrop. We hope to see you back on campus again soon!
I met with some alumnae from the Graduating Class of 1962 who had a stellar turnout of alumnae for their event. Many thanks to the reunion committee—Bunny Vagg ’62, Ina Guse ’62, Georgia MacAdams ’62, Natalie Erskine ’62 and Joanne Hutton ’62—for rallying your classmates! The event was hosted at Joanne Hutton’s home, and special attention was placed on every detail of décor, including a CHS tree! The ladies had a wonderful time laughing and chatting as though no time had passed.
Thank You, Volunteers!
Through the pandemic, lockdown, changing regulations alumnae did not disappoint! You showed up and helped out volunteering for virtual and in person events. Here are some stories and messages of gratitude for the over 200 alumnae volunteers who helped out this past year.
Thank you, Dr. Isla Myers-Smith ’98 and Jackie Law ’13, for visiting CHS and speaking to the girls about your varied STEM careers! The students benefited tremendously and learned about two paths that STEM can take you on, from a career in ecology to software engineering for Google.
Margaret Mortifee Saby ’63 visited Ms Uyen Ta’s Advanced AP Grade 11 French class to discuss her experience living in France for the past 50 years as an artist and raising her family. Ms Mortifee Saby shared some of her work and provided the students with tips on relocating to a new country. Thank you, Margaret, for being generous with your time! The students certainly enjoyed hearing from you and asking questions en français. Alumnae, if you would like to visit campus and share a skill with the class, please let us know!
Congratulations to Amy Lo ’93 for her work as lead engineer creating the sunshield for the James Webb Telescope. The sunshield is vital for keeping the telescope’s infrared-sensing instruments at subzero temperatures as they scan the universe for new stars and galaxies, and examine the atmosphere of alien worlds for possible signs of life.
Congratulations to Rebecca Marino ’08, who returned to Wimbledon to play for the second time in her tennis career! You might have seen Rebecca play in the Davis Cup this past April at the University of British Columbia, where she defeated Paula Ormaechea of Argentina 6-4 6-3.
Congratulations Ambassador Aliya Mawani ’91, for being appointed as the Ambassador of Canada to the State of Kuwait! Ambassador Mawani’s appointment makes her the first Muslim woman to serve as a Canadian Ambassador abroad.
Congratulations Peyton Thomas ’11 for winning the International Literacy Association Award in the category of Young Adult Fiction for his debut novel, Both Sides Now. The New York Times called Both Sides Now a young adult book to watch for, and the CBC and Globe and Mail named it one of the best young adult books of 2021.
Congratulations to Diana Filer ’50 for her encyclopedia knowledge in creating the weekly quiz for the Millstone Magazine for the past 10 years! Diana spent the lionshare of her career in broadcasting, working in senior positions at the CBC for decades. Unsure who was the first empire, or what Raku is? Follow along with Diana’s weekly quiz to find out.
