2016-01-01 Coralie Robertson

Coralie Robertson

A student committed to promoting a balanced and healthy lifestyle in her community

For Coralie Robertson, getting involved is a lever to achieving equilibrium and greater well-being. Athletic and results-oriented, she leads a wide variety of projects and spares no effort when it comes to achieving her objectives. This graduate student at Cité étudiante Roberval has always been active and, although she has an outstanding track record, admits that she hasn’t always possessed this thirst for accomplishment. When she began high school, she shied away from sport, rarely gave it her all and sometimes settled for less. Clear-headed, she decided to distance herself from the negative influence of some of the people in her inner circle in order to go her own way and succeed. Today, she acknowledges that the satisfaction of a job well done has allowed her to discover two things: her personal skills and the exhilarating feeling that comes with giving of one’s time.

Mel-Lyna Cadieux

A student committed to protecting and advocating for pets

Nearly all children love animals. But there aren’t very many who love them so much that they would become a volunteer, working to defend their rights, raise awareness and provide people with information regarding their sometimes deplorable living conditions, as well as organizing fund raisers and material collections for animal shelters and asking people to sign petitions to denounce worrying situations. This is nonetheless the path that Mel-Lyna Cadieux chose to follow five years ago. The Secondary 5 student at Jacques-Rousseau high school is now 17 years old and never passes up an opportunity to try and help improve the plight of neglected and mistreated animals.

Michelle Laflamme’s school principal likens her to “disciplined popcorn.” If truth be told, although she is brimming with incredible energy, she also has tremendous self-discipline when it comes to carrying out each and every one of her projects.

Philippe Doucet

A student committed to establishing a culture of respect at his school

Empathy. This great quality that allows us to share the feelings of others and prompts us to put ourselves in their shoes and understand what they are going through is an innate ability for Philippe Doucet. And it’s precisely this gift that has prompted the sports concentration program student at Pavillon Wilbrod-Dufour to develop a project that will rally the entire student body: an anti-bullying program. His goal is to encourage his peers to report any form of bullying they witness and make assistance resources more easily accessible. Between swimming training, schoolwork and volunteering, Philippe continues to work on his project, which should be finalised by the end of the school year and ready to be fully implemented next year.

A student committed to exploring her various personal attributes in order to make a difference in her community and find her rightful place

The school yearbook, mentoring in English, the creation and publication of a magazine, the fashion show and Polyshow are all on the long list of things she’s involved in at school, not to mention her volunteer work in the community, among other things as a day camp assistant counsellor and soccer coach for 4 to 6 year olds.

It is also a means of making a difference in the community.

A student committed to vitalizing student life and helping students better manage academic performance related stress

For some people, there are a thousand reasons for getting stressed out and they can sometimes put so much pressure on themselves that they lose sleep.

A way of going back to one’s roots, back to the essential, to what is real and authentic.
