  • MMA Student Profile 17: Adbulfatah Alshaar

    Meet Adbulfatah, A Secondary V Student here at MMA who has been with us for 1 year. Here's his interview.

    What are your memories of MMA that you will take with you in the future?

    My special memories was the BBQ party we did in the school, it was a really fun day with my friends and teachers. Also I will forever miss my special teacher Ms. Doughan when she took our classmates to have ice cream; it was a fun day. Finally, I will never forget our Grad trip it. I enjoyed the best time of my life with my friends, and it was one of the best trips I had.

    In what ways do you think MMA has prepared you for your next steps in your journey?

    I learned some new skills. For example: painting and drawing (I spent a lot of time for art class). Also I learned new things in my life such as fencing and archery, which have been new experiences for me. I believe skills in fencing and archery can help me to focus my mind for exams and stressful situations, much like in a fencing duel.

    What will you miss most about leaving MMA?

    I will miss my teachers, they were like my second parents at school. Also my friends who have always been there for me throughout thick and thin.

    Last thoughts...

    My first and last year in MMA was very nice and a good experience for me and I will never forget it. MMA is the best school that I have ever attended and the experiences have helped me develop as a person in physical, mental, and emotional aspects of my self.

  • MMA Student Profile 16: Abdullah Adewusi

    Meet Abdullah, A Secondary V Student here at MMA who has been with us for 5 years. Here's his interview

    What are your memories of MMA that you will take with you in the future?

    The memories that I will take with me are probably the grad trip; some of my teachers and our interactions, some of my friends and some fellow students, and one special memory of one of the times at MMA. I will always remember the grad trip because at first, I didn't want to go and at the time, I was very stressed. When I went on the grad trip, it relieved almost all of my stress and cheered me up after the second day. I will cherish my memories of my teachers and fellow friends and students because though there have been lots of rough times, there are some qualities of them that I really liked and I incorporated them into my own personality and character that have made me a much better person. For example, being always prepared came from my math teacher Ms. Tran.

    In what ways do you think MMA has prepared you for your next steps in your journey?

    MMA has an IB program, so along with academics, it also brought with it community service and personal projects. Even though I personally disliked these things, I acknowledge that this is reality - when I get to college, I may have to work and I may have to do more than academics. So, the environment at MMA, in my opinion, prepared me to be more adapted to the real world, once I enter it.

    What will you miss most about leaving MMA?

    There are some good moments which are very precious to me. I think I am going miss the moments where I had to work extremely hard for something and the results were extremely satisfying. For example, in Secondary 4, my final art project. The art project was that I had to make a sculpture, and seeing that I had been in the Music Program the previous year, it had been really hard trying to do all of the process journaling and actual sculpting. When I had finally finished my final art product, it was appreciated by the teacher and my peers, which gave me a very deep sense of satisfaction. I will miss all of these stressful moments that made me a better person in regards to my time management and work efficiency. I also learned the value of work and dedication.

    Last thoughts...

    Well, to be honest, I never really liked school. However, I will dearly cherish what I have learned through my experiences and the occasional good moment, seeing that these past years at Marymount Academy have truly brought joy to my life. Also, my time at Marymount has made me develop an interest for all subjects, including those that I liked and didn't like, and it made me realize that all subjects are interconnected and are linked to producing the things that I like. For example, video games. I would like to thank everyone at Marymount for an amazing, well, kind of amazing, 5 years. Thank you, MMA.

  • MMA Student Profile 15: Manqi Liang.

    Meet Manqi, A Secondary V Student here at MMA who has been with us for 3 years. Here's her interview

    What are your memories of MMA that you will take with you in the future?

    The memories of MMA that I will take with me are the grad trip in Toronto, Zip-lining in Abraska, Mr. Nigel greeting us up the stairs every morning, Mr. Ouwendyk singing with his guitar, Ms. Tran's math jokes, playing cards during lunch at step, practicing the flute and bassoon at the music hall, doing labs, playing badminton and doing archery at gym, doing the Terry Fox run, going out and having ice cream, etc. There were many good memories that I created at Marymount.

    In what ways do you think MMA has prepared you for your next steps in your journey?

    MMA has prepared me for my future in academic areas and also in participating in social activities. I learned how to work hard and play hard in MMA. Moreover, I learned how to help others and not be ashamed to ask for help.

    What will you miss most about leaving MMA?

    I will miss the teachers and my schoolmates the most after leaving MMA. They have become very close friends and we all have each other's backs.

    Last thoughts...

    Our school is like our family, we can complain all about them all the time, but we wouldn't allow anyone else to say a single bad thing about it. Cherish your time at MMA because time truly flies.

  • MMA Student Profile: Joel Lokonga. Meet Joel, A Secondary V Student here at MMA who has been with us for 5 years. Here's his interview.

    How has Marymount prepared you for the future?

    At Marymount, I learned the importance of being balanced. I always knew that I wanted to become very involved in school clubs and committees, but never really understood how time management played out in all of it. It’s easy to lose track of assignments when you have many other interesting things to do. Marymount has taught me to always be the best version of myself, even when it may be extremely hard to do so. I can honestly say that my 5 years at Marymount have really impacted me in a positive way. It’s crazy to think how so much has changed in these past 5 years. It’s all gone by so fast.

    If you could go back and talk to you grade 7 self what advice would you offer?

    Get involved! It wasn’t really until my 3rd year at Marymount that I began staying late to help out after school. I mean, besides band rehearsals, I wasn’t actually doing too much around school. Getting involved in school has allowed me to break out of my comfort zone on multiple occasions. I remember being really shy my first year coming into high school. I had all of these pre-conceived ideas about what high school could be like and they really freaked me out. That’s why I kept to myself and did my best not to bother anyone. If I could go back and talk to myself then, I’d strongly advise myself to get involved more. Put myself out there and do things I normally wouldn’t do in front of people.

    What will you miss the most when you leave Marymount?

    The people. Seeing the same faces for 5 years and then suddenly parting ways isn’t easy. I mean, I practically grew up with these people. I’ve seen them at their best (as well as at their worst). There are strong ties between the people at Marymount. I’ve seen how these people got to be where they are now and how much they’ve grown in 5 years. All of the experiences and memories we all shared together. Those are things you never forget. Oh, I’ll also miss being so laid back in my first few months of high school, before the work started pilling on. It was worth it though. I still can’t believe how fast these 5 years have gone by. It’s crazy to think about.

  • MMA Student Profile: Tharaneea Thambimuthu. Meet Tharaneea, A Secondary V Student here at MMA who has been with us for 5 years. Here's her interview.

    How has Marymount prepared you for the future?

    I have learned many things at Marymount such as to never give up, always think positive and believe in yourself. Marymount has helped me find who I am as a person and gave me a voice. I don’t know what my future hold for me but I know it will be for the best.

    If you could go back and talk to you grade 7 self what advice would you offer?

    I would tell myself to be more involved in school. After getting involved in activities I figured out who I am as a person and helped me connect with many people.

    What will you miss the most when you leave Marymount?

    I will miss all the teachers and my class mates, we were all like a family and now we are all going our separate ways. I’m going to miss all the school activities that we did which brought us together. The staff and and everyone at Marymount made me feel like I belong. I’m for sure going to miss my graduating class, I’ve been with them for 5 years, we all grew together as a big family and after 5 years we are going to go our own ways. I’m especially going to miss the ones that I know I won’t see after graduation. There’s always an end to a happiness.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Madison Pagliuca, A Secondary II Student

    What is your favorite subject in Grade 8 and why?

    My favorite subject in grade 8 would have to be Geography because I get to ask lots of questions and learn so much about the environment and different locations. My teacher is also great and very helpful.

    What do you like about being a Marymount Academy student?

    What i like most about being a Marymount student is the uniform because it looks really good and it is very practical. I also enjoy the extra curricular sports such as badminton, soccer, and basketball. The gyms are always opened in the morning, at lunch and after school. It's a great place to be with my friends and enjoy the different sports.

    How is the relationship between the juniors and seniors a positive one?

    I have a good relationship with the juniors and the seniors in my school. The juniors are fun and its easy to relate to them because we share classes and many activities. I like the seniors because they are very mature and down to earth. They are always planning events for the entire school and are always there to help us if we need anything around the school.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Aiden Lee, A Secondary II Student

    What is your favorite subject in Grade 8 and why?

    My favorite subject in Grade 8 is Science, because my teacher is really helpful and I feel like I am getting smarter as I go to science class. I also love doing the experiments in class.

    What do you like about being a Marymount Academy student?

    I really like that most of Marymount students are open minded, because most of us came from different countries. Being able to communicate and play with students who are from different countries helps me to understand their culture and appreciate what each of us have to offer./p>

    How is the relationship between the juniors and seniors a positive one?

    I have a good relationship with the seniors, because they are nice to us, and help us with some problems around the school. For example, Jerron teaches me how to play badminton well and Jake helps me with math problems that I cannot solve. It's really nice having a connection with the seniors in our school.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Joelle Elkabas, A Secondary III Student

    What do you like most about being a student at Marymount Academy International?

    Being a student at Marymount Academy International, I have the opportunity to participate in many extracurricular activities such as soccer, basketball and many more. We have the Terry Fox Run every year, which I find is an amazing way to start off the year because we are raising awareness for a good cause. We are also able to meet many different international students from different countries with different cultures, which is what makes Marymount one of a kind.

    As a grade 9 student, how does Marymount Academy International prepare you for your senior grades?

    Being in Grade 9, I am able to learn the things that are going to prepare me for the future, for example one of the hardest years in high school which is Grade 10. I am able to learn the paths that I want to take on in the future and what I want to pursue. The teachers make us answer critical questions and make us reflect on all of our work. They prepare us as much as they can for us to successfully pass the year. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me.

    What is your favorite memory at Marymount Academy International?

    My favourite memory at Marymount Academy International is when I got the opportunity to participate in student council. I was running for secretary, I sadly did not win, but the best part was getting to go up on stage and tell people why they should vote for me and what makes me a good student. There is always next year. I am happy to call myself a Marymount student.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Mattias Gasparello, A Secondary III Student

    What do you like most about being a student at Marymount Academy International?

    One of the many joys of being a Marymount Academy International student would be the environment it provides. Marymount Academy provides a very safe and helpful environment. The teachers are not shy to offer aid and are truly supportive. With many educational after school activities, the school wants us to succeed in life and in school. Marymount Academy International is inimitable.

    As a grade 9 student, how does Marymount Academy International prepare you for your senior grades?

    The staff of Marymount Academy International do their very best to inform us and help guide us upon the correct path that suits us best. The teachers work indefatigably to ensure we are successful academically and in future employment. I do not believe that I would be better prepared for the years ahead of me at any other school.

    What is your favorite memory at Marymount Academy International?

    Despite the fact that I am in grade 9 and that I am sure that there are many more wonderful memories to be made, to date, my favorite memory would have to be the 2016 Stratford trip. It gave us occasion to experience two magnificent plays that are still very much relevant today, ‘’Macbeth’’ and “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”. Not to mention it gave us an opportunity to have our minds thinking about something other than school.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Rohan Ghosh, A Secondary III Student

    What do you like most about being a student at Marymount Academy International?

    Personally, I love the cultural environment here at Marymount Academy. We have students from all over the world and from various different backgrounds. We help one another and try to include those who may have trouble fitting in. I also really enjoy being a part of the after school programs such as robotics, band, leadership... the list goes on.

    As a grade 9 student, how does Marymount Academy International prepare you for your senior grades?

    The teachers here at Marymount Academy try their absolute hardest to ensure our academic success and we as the students greatly appreciate their effort as it motivates us to excel in our fields.

    What is your favorite memory at Marymount Academy International?

    Although I am in grade 9 and still have years to go, I’ve made many memories here at Marymount Academy International. My favourite memory here at Marymount Academy was attending the Stratford trip. It was an eventful and educational trip that brought a lot of students closer together. We were given the opportunity to attend the “Macbeth” play (by William Shakespeare) along with “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” (by C.S. Lewis). Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet K'ron Deane Fortune, Secondary 5 Student

    exams

    What will you take away from your Marymount experience, after you graduate?

    After graduation I will have the knowledge and skills to be a leader, communicator and motivator. I’ve had the support of many teachers that want the best for me. I look up to them for guidance and insight because they are respected around the school and were always there for me when I needed them. Once I graduate, I want to have what they have, faith in myself and in others. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my years of high school is to never regret, never live your life with doubt and that everything happens for a reason. I now know that in the end all works out for the best.

    Something unique to Marymount

    Marymount is one of the few schools that have an ethnic culture to it, and the diversity and acceptance of everyone is astonishing because the amount of effort the faculty and the students put into events such as assemblies, special guests and inspirational icons is amazing because when we have activities like this, we all work together as one unit. And I think because of the fact that we support each other as an international school, it's unique because you don’t see that as much as you should.

    How has Marymount prepared you for the future?

    Marymount has prepared me for the future because as I grew up and faced problems, it allowed me to understand real life situations. It has taught me how to hold back the pain, accept what this world has to offer because everyone has a role to play in our society. Marymount has taught me to be a leader and to help people strive to be better. It allowed me to have a voice and to believe in myself. Marymount has taught me to help myself and those around me to be fit for what the future has in store.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Biesma Hussin, Secondary 5 Student

    exams

    What will you take away from your Marymount experience, after you graduate?

    What I will take away from Marymount is the enormous amount of love I have received from the teachers. The amount of love and care that the teachers have shown me during my ups and downs is what I will truly cherish for the rest of my life. Second, the experiences that I had with the amazing students is also what makes it unforgettable. The love and enjoyment we get to experience in Marymount Academy International is what makes us a true family, and I will never ever be able to forget the moments I created in this school.

    Something unique to Marymount

    Marymount has a lot of features that makes it unique amongst the other schools. However something that really brings out the uniqueness is the variety of cultures we get too see every day. I almost feel like I am traveling around the world just by connecting with all the students from different countries. The relations between the teachers and students is also something that makes Marymount distinctive. .

    How has Marymount prepared you for the future?

    Marymount has taught me many things useful for my future, such as never giving up, never being afraid to ask for help, and to always have an open minded attitude. Although I am not sure what my future holds for me, I truly believe that the best is yet to come for me.

    exams

    What will you take away from your Marymount experience, after you graduate?

    My 4 years at Marymount have allowed me to mature, expand my knowledge on many different subjects and prepare me for my future in the business world. More importantly though, it has allowed me to create memories that will last me a lifetime. The relationships that I have built with my friends and with the teachers are things that I am forever grateful for.

    Something unique to Marymount

    The IB programme which allows for a large diversity of cultures in Marymount is what separates Marymount from other high school programs. We are also so lucky to have people from all over the world be part of our MMA family. Everyone is comfortable in the school and contributes to the school life. What’s also amazing is all of support given by the teachers and the extra-curricular activities. We have a weight training room, a new field, a bistro, 2 gyms, and an amphitheatre. We also have 3 student bodies, Student Council, Leadership and IB Council, that put on so many trips, events and activities for the students. There’s always something amazing happening at Marymount.

    How has Marymount prepared you for the future?

    Marymount Academy has made me realize that I can do whatever I want if I believe in myself and push myself. It has encouraged me to be athletic and learn how to manage different parts of life all at once. It has also given me an opportunity to mature and feel ready for whatever my future has in store for me.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Lansu Dai, Secondary 5 International Student

    exams

    Why was Montreal and Marymount Academy International your choice to come for school?

    I came to Montreal because my aunt lives here so that she can take care of me. I am an international student from China, and Marymount also is an international school, making it my best choice. Besides, my aunt helped me choose this school as she wanted me to know more about other countries’ cultures and Canada.

    What are your impressions of Montreal and Marymount Academy International?

    I like Montreal because of the weather, although the winter in Montreal is very cold. In Beijing, there is a lot of pollution and the summer is very hot. I enjoy the summer very much here. MMA has a lot of international students. The friends I’ve made in MMA are all very nice and friendly. I never tried to make friends with teachers in China, but here at Marymount I can be friends with teachers.

    If you had to say anything to an international student who is interested in studying overseas and was thinking of Montreal and MMA, what would you tell them?

    Montreal is the best place for studying. It has nice weather and brings positive feelings. If you want to experience different cultures, choosing Marymount Academy International is your best choice. Students and teachers here are very kind, and there are also many activities in MMA.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Noah Nudo, Secondary 5 Student

    exams

    This is your last year of high school. What have been some of your biggest lessons learned?

    The biggest lesson that I have learned is to have confidence. Confidence not only in myself but in others as well. In my first year of high school I didn’t have any; I was insecure. I thought that I was small and felt useless to myself and everyone around me. Now fast forward four years while I’m writing this, I can successfully say that I love myself, not too much or too little, but just enough to be happy with my life.

    In your opinion, what is the best part of being a MMA student

    Personally Marymount has saved my life. When I graduated from elementary school, I was faced with two choices, LCCHS or MMA. I chose MMA and I am happy I did. Not to be mean but I look back at all my friends that went to LCCHS, and they seem to be like thugs. To be honest I don’t blame them; the school, at the time, was very socially segregated in many ways, with many worrying about being the cool kid or what people thought of you. Unfortunately, this really got to my friends and they were changed by it, not for the best. Now, I’m not being paid to advertise MMA but it really did save me. Just like LCCHS, there is social segregation and social issues but they are not as severe here because of the staff. The staff at this school is exceptional. Now there may be differences in beliefs or principles that cause conflicts among staff members but in the end they will put away their differences to help us as kids in such social situations.

    In what ways has MMA prepared for the next step in your life post-high school?

    Through the staff I have prepared myself for life using their experiences and misfortunes as lessons for my own life.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet Beatrice Corti, Secondary 5 International Student

    exams

    Beatrice is one of our international students who has come to us from Italy to study here in Montreal and at MMA for this year. We recently interviewed her and this is a little bit of that interview.

    Why was Montreal and Marymount Academy International your choice to come for school?

    I chose Montreal mostly because my dad came here when he was my age, and told me to come if I wanted to learn French while improving my English. In particular, I chose MMA since I was impressed by the International environment and the extracurricular activities. I felt that the IB program offered was one that I can relate to and feel comfortable studying in.

    You've been here for 6 plus weeks now: what are your impressions of Montreal and Marymount Academy International?

    I am really glad to be in this school. I enjoy spending time with my fellow peers and I appreciate all the activities that I took and continue to take part in. Also, the teachers and the staff are very friendly and always available. I appreciate the fact that my origins are valued while at the same time I am exposed to a diverse range of other cultures. It feels like a truly caring family, where every one of us is valuable.

    If you had to say anything to an international student who is interested in studying overseas and was thinking of Montreal and MMA, what would you tell them?'

    I highly recommend this experience in general, and especially in Montreal and MMA. It might be hard to fit in, mostly because of the two languages, but it is totally worth it. This experience will make them grow up and open their mind. You meet so many wonderful people and have an experience of a lifetime. They will have loads of fun because of all the friendly people and the awesome activities that they could participate in. I would urge them to cherish their experience as best as they can.

  • MMA Student Profile: Meet our new Student Council President Jerron Santhiypillai

    exams

    What were you thinking/feeling when you found out you were elected student council president of Marymount Academy International?

    When I found out I was elected, I was happy. Also, couldn't wait to get on the job and do well for my Marymount students. I've been at Marymount for 5 years and loved every minute of it. One thing I would like to key on is continuing to make MMA a warm, welcoming environment for the many international students who are studying here. Being very social, I like interacting with other students which helps me in getting to know people and as president, I want to set a standard for the school body to follow and emulate.

    In your 5th and last year at MMA, what are some of the best attributes that you have come to love about your school?

    Since this is my 5th year at Marymount academy I've had time to time to observe and learn about the school and it’s strengths.. Students love to be involved in the process of school life; not just in the classroom. Students and teachers on the whole get along well. Staff and administration are interested in the development of their students not only in the classroom but giving us opportunities to be involved in the growth of our school in every way is a great attribute of our school.

    If there is one thing you would like to do that would leave a lasting legacy of your final year at MMA, what would it be?

    Something I want to leave behind is a good reputation not only as student council president but also as a student and young man. I believe it is very important that when someone makes a promise, they keep it so I want to do the things I promised to do as president when I ran for the position. I would like to be a part of the process that helps continue great relations between students, staff and administration so that what makes Marymount Academy International very special continues for years to come.
