Say no to the snow, delay the MTS prom!
Move Prom Out of April
No one wants to be cold on their prom night, let alone take pictures in the snow. For the first time in years, Mother Teresa Catholic Secondary School has decided to move back the prom date to April 26th, 2013 rather than the usual June date. When students confronted vice principals and teachers the answer they got was ''so students could focus on their studies''. The MTS student community understands how important education is, but high school memories are also needed. When students look back on their high school lives they want to know how well they did in classes but also how much fun they had socialising with friends at the numerous gatherings throughout the years. Considering many of the social events have been suspended, prom is the one amazing night the grade twelve students get to look forward to during their last year of high school. Grade twelve is one of the most important years in a high school student’s life. The idea of graduating with friends and celebrating the accomplishments they have made throughout the years is every high school students dream. Every year students prior to the 2013 graduates got to experience an amazing prom night filled with warmth and joy thanks to the late prom date, this graduating class deserves the same experience without being forced into this trial run. MTS students understand how big of an impact this year will have on the rest of their lives considering their education and their social lives. For some students, this is one of the most important nights and events of their high school lives. It is a night to spend time with friends they may never see out of school again, a time to get together and rejoice the years they have spent together, a time to take pictures in the outdoor sunny weather and a time to make memories they will never forget.
