Senior Athletics Director, Marlene Donaldson, awards QMS student Maiya Modeste with the Spirit of the Royals Award during their recent Athletics Banquet.

“One of the exciting aspects of QMS athletics is that our students continuously endeavour to reach their full potential,” says Senior Athletics Director Marlene Donaldson. “Our guest speaker Mandy Marchak is one of the world’s best female rugby players and is a tangible example of how commitment and hard work can help you not only attain your personal goals, but establish a pathway to learn valuable life lessons in the process. The lessons our youth learn in sports are invaluable, and ones they will carry with them…always. Congratulations to all of our award recipients.”
