Centennial Grad At Her Highschool Prom!
Perfectly poised and articulate, 18 year old Isabelle Ouellette recently recounted some of her high school experiences including her recent prom debut.
Isy (as she prefers to be called) attends Heydon Park Secondary School in downtown Toronto, a unique TDSB all-female school. She currently has four high school credits and this fall will have her first co-op placement at the Bank of Montreal. Isy enthusiastically talked about attending community college in the future and some of the options she is considering: fashion studies, make-up artistry, music and computer studies.
Isy’s recent active social life has included two school proms! She received an invitation from Alex, a long-time friend, in contemporary fashion via text message. The ‘grad prom’ for North Toronto Collegiate was to take place at the Palais Royale in late May. Mom’s emerald green prom dress (yes…saved in a trunk from Julia’s high school days!) was brought out; it fit perfectly and was given a contemporary update. Grandma Mary and Nanny were called upon for make-up and hair expertise. As her picture attests, Isy looked fabulous! She went off to have dinner by the lake, followed by dancing to a great DJ and rests on the lovely outdoor patio…..not to mention a long ‘nap’ on the bus the next day on a school excursion to Wonderland!
Congrats Isy on all you have achieved! Thanks for sharing your story…..we always like to hear about our Centennial graduates.
