There is only one week until the first day of school and the Ridley campus is buzzing with faculty and staff preparing for the upcoming school year. Parents and students are coming to campus to pick up their uniforms and books and final preparations are being made in the houses and on campus to ensure everything is ready for when the students return!
Ridley College has a new Housemaster for Gooderham East! Ms. Cousins moved into her new G-East digs a few weeks ago and is settling in well. I decided to ask the new Housemaster a few questions about her new position:
#1. How long have you worked at Ridley?
I have been at Ridley for 10 years. I started in the I.T. Helpdesk, then moved to the Communications Department, and now I am really enjoying the Admissions Department. I was a duty member in Leonard House then I became the Assistant Housemaster 3 years ago.
#2. What are you looking forward to as a new Housemaster?
I am looking forward to maintaining the G-East traditions, but also starting some new ones. I’m excited to get to know the girls and be a part of thier continued growth and development as successful, happy and healthy young women.
#3. What do you like to do for fun?
For fun, I like working out and enjoy group yoga classes.
#4. What are you looking forward to in the upcoming year?
I enjoy watching the student plays and sports, so I am looking forward to that!
#5. You have a dog, tell me about him.
Sammy is my 2-year-old Boston Bulldog. He loves everyone, and likes to be the center of attention!!
