Meeraya M., University of Guelph – Zoology
Meeraya came to Trafalgar in Grade 5 and spent eight years at the Castle! While she didn’t arrive at the Castle with any specific goals other than having fun, her goals changed and developed as she got older. Her main goal was to be herself and someone that other students could go to for help, advice, or if they just need someone to talk to. Throughout her eight years at Trafalgar, she had the chance to participate in many co-curriculars that shaped her into the person she is today. Throughout her time at Trafalgar, Meeraya was a valuable member of our Athletics teams, participating in volleyball, tennis, soccer, basketball and badminton. With a love for the Arts, you could also find her playing with the Brass Ensemble, Castle Band and on stage in the school plays or expressing her creativity in the Art with Heart and reading clubs. Other pursuits included LEGO Robotics, robotics mentor, Math and Science clubs along with being actively engaged in the Chess Club, UNICEF, Active Citizenship and gardening clubs.
She has been a prominent leader at the School, being a part of Student Council for five years, TASC Co-Head, and in her final year, Head Prefect.
Meerya’s greatest achievements have included becoming TASC Co-Head, getting the role of Head Prefect, being elected May Queen and Valedictorian in her Grade 12 year. She also spearheaded the Period Equity Project (PEP). Aimed at spreading awareness on issues around period equity and menstrual health, PEP brought free menstrual products into the School’s washroom facilities in case of emergencies.
Meeraya says, “during my time at Trafalgar, I grew up from a little kid to a strong, independent person and every moment at the Castle shaped me into the person I am today. Even though I am sad to be leaving the Castle, I know it is in great hands with the School’s future students.”
