In September, Ms Helen Pereira-Raso was approached by Fashion Forward Club leaders, Caitlin Chee-Kirkpatrick in Grade 11 and Lindsay Stroz in Grade 10, after 20+ additional students requested to join the club. The club's allocated budget was not enough to support the supplies needed for the additional students. After the two students successfully presented a proposal requesting more funds be added to the Fashion Forward Club’s budget, Ms Helen Pereira-Raso granted funds from the Head's Discretionary Fund to cover these additional costs. 

On April 4, we held our student-led Haute Design event. The evening showcased exquisite fashion made by students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in our innovation labs. Fashion pieces created by students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 were on display, and models walked the runway to feature our Fashion Forward Club's designs.
