Marymount, along with the IB, has taught me an interest in learning. I hope whoever is reading this can gain valuable things from your Marymount experience like me.

Mr Robertson, among others, has been a very influential figure whilst at Marymount. As an IB art teacher and advisor, I have learnt so much from him not only about art, but also on how I need to have faith in myself to achieve my goals.

Ally shares What will you miss most about Marymount? Simply how it makes me feel at home. I’ll miss the long walks around campus and eating takeout in the DP Lounge and the famous Marymount traditions. I’ll really miss the teachers too. They were such a massive part of our lives – some o...

My advice for younger students is to enjoy every moment surrounded by the amazing people at Marymount. Our time in high school was cut short, which really made me realize how valuable those small moments are.

My love for cooking has always been in the outcome of the food, the way it tastes and its presentation. Rarely though, do I find myself actually observing the various utensils that I use. Spending all this time at home, I have discovered a new interest in these items I find around my kitchen. My mother has a stone mortar and pestle that I have always been fascinated by.

I am so very proud of the Class of 2020 and although our high school experience ended differently than we expected, we made it! This situation has only strengthened our bond and made us more resilient. To the younger girls that I have the privilege to call my friends, I will miss you all, but I can’t wait to see what you will achieve in the future, so keep going because I believe in you. To the rest of the Marymount community, enjoy your time because I miss it already.

Sometimes, unexpected plans may happen in the journey, you may face upsetting and discouraging experiences, but all of those things are there for you to learn, so why not look at their positive side? Those moments go past if you decide to return to the positive and optimistic attitude!

I normally do not like to give advice to people, as everyone is different in many ways and advice is not always effective. However, if I were to give some, it would be to not become engulfed by someone or something, ex. relationship, information, work… Being independent and thinking for yourself is the key.

Remember that things aren’t always as they seem, as cringe-y as that may sound, so always look out for your friends and the people around you. Take every opportunity to learn and have a good time, go on as many school trips as possible, and always ask for help when you need it.
