Ann Rohmer, News Anchor, Branksome Hall Alumnus

In 2009, Our Kids Go to School interviewed Ann Rohmer to talk about the effect her education at Branksome Hall, a girls' school in Toronto, Ontario, had on her career and personal development.

Q: How has an independent school helped shape the person you are today? What life skills did you learn?

A: I received a very focused and thorough education at Branksome Hall. I was really lucky because my parents did what so many parents do, being that they scraped together every nickel that they had to send me there. They wanted the best for me. I know and appreciate that, and I was able to learn the best academic and life skills.

Q: What opportunities have opened up for you as a result of going to an independent school?

A: I've been able to seize a lot of opportunities in my career. I'm not sure if that is because of an independent school, but I've been fortunate to find them and go after them.

Q: What is your fondest memory at an independent school?

A: After so many years, the school dances always stand out. It was a time that we could get out of our uniforms, dress up and just have fun.

Ann Rohmer is the former lead anchor of CP24 Toronto, and is now pursuing a new career in the aviation industry
