Olympic sprinter Adrienne Power was our special guest and motivational speaker in elementary assembly this week. Originally from Eastern Shore, NS, Adrienne shared the story of how she became an elite athlete, fulfilling her dear grandfather's dream of her representing Canada at the Olympic Games. Ms. Power shared her Personal Success Framework, speaking to the importance of hard work and focus built on a solid foundation of daily sleep, nutrition, and practice on the athletic field and in the classroom. Responding to failure was a key point in her presentation, and this is a message we hope our students will carry forward. Successful people don't win every time, and when they fail they learn from the experience and improve through focus and hard work. As always, our students were hyper attentive and asked great questions, and we even had a chance to pass around a Team Canada baton that has made its way around the world. In this way, each of us touched greatness and were inspired by Adrienne's encouraging words.
