She placed first for two consecutive years at the provincial Concours D’Art Oratoire (a French speaking competition that most French immersion students across Canada participate in each year.) She volunteers her time as a tutor to her peers at Stelly’s, and was a peer tutor to two struggling students last year at Bayside.
She’s also an avid quilter. Her quilts and other sewn projects have won first place for many years at the Saanich fair, and have also won multiple special awards, (best exhibit, Quilters’ Guild award, etc.) She was involved in a volunteer project that sent quilts to African orphans, and is currently working on a project to make quilts for premature babies at Victoria General Hospital.
Alysha’s full schedule keeps her busy, but her bright outlook on life is infectious to those around her. Because of all this and more, she truly is an Amazing Kid. (Source: CTV Website)
