When asked to share their start-of-the-year highlights and what they are most looking forward to in November, here’s what the SSC Team said …


“My September highlight was attending my brother-in-law’s wedding and celebrating my niece’s second birthday. In October, I enjoyed some baseball in the beautiful fall weather, and I am looking forward to some great HCOS team-building opportunities in November.”

In September, I enjoyed meeting new HCOS students/families and getting back to routine. Celebrating and supporting our new HCOS Student Council and gathering for Thanksgiving with my family were two October highlights. As for November, I am looking forward to volunteering at the local food bank with the international students who live with us.”

“My September highlight was meeting so many new students and working with them on so many interesting problems and assignments! In October, I went road-tripping to Portland with my best friend Amanda! Something I’m looking forward to in November is my mom coming to Victoria to visit for a week!”

In September, I was excited to dive back into work and reconnect with past students and meet new ones! I also enjoyed a couple of weekend trips with my sisters; my favourite was visiting the small town of Blue Mountain. Celebrating Thanksgiving with nearly my entire family – for the first time in many years! – was my October highlight. As for November, I am most looking forward to doing everything Christmas with my mom!”

My September highlight was moving into a new house and beginning reno’s. In October, I attended my brother-in-law’s wedding in Michigan. Something I’m looking forward to in November is continuing to meet new students and helping them with math!”
