Terrance received high marks in all six of Gr.12 courses with an overall average over 90%. In addition, as President of Student Council, Terrance was an excellent role model for the other students and actively contributed to the Merit community. As a result, Terrance was accepted into most of the top universities to which he applied, including the University of Western Ontario, McMaster University, the University of British Columbia, Queens University and the University of Toronto with scholarship. He has decided to go to the University of Toronto to study the most popular program - Commerce in the fall.
Over past 2 years, I have been studying at Merit Education, which makes me a successful student not only in academic studies, but also in extracurricular activities. As a young person, I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to come to Canada to continue my secondary education. My participation in extracurricular activities has significantly improved my social skills, leadership, and communication skills.
Last year, as a Business Council Leader in student council, I hosted the 2015 UNICEF Charity Gala run by my school, Merit Education.Compared to China, there are more extracurricular activities in Canada that schools encourage students to participate in. As a Business Council leader, I took the initiative and applied for the Host position for the UNICEF Charity Gala. This role gave me the opportunity to write, practice, and deliver a very touching speech. I had never spoken at such a grand event and the preparation really paid off.
This year I have been elected as the student council chairman. Our students have actively involved in different extracurricular activities, such as the volunteer event. We have done such a great job and raised more than 15000 dollars for the children in need. All of this could not have been done without support from our principal, our teachers and our staff.
