SBDHS Alumni - Natalia Wycislak ('15)

Updated: Oct 16, 2018

Graduated from SBDHS in 2015 with Honours!

Attended St. Emile School for early & middle years.

"St. B is a wonderful community of teachers, mentors, and peers who encouraged me to enjoy every moment and build memories through the clubs, trips, and activities the school has to offer! I will always be thankful for those at St. B who continue to support my dreams and aspirations."

- Natalia Wycislak

Some of my proudest moments at SBDHS were at Envirothon, when my amazing team worked collaboratively to present our knowledge in ecology and sustainability, and to help solve environmental problems. My overall experience with SBDHS was excellent. Both fun and academic, St. B. supports hard work and the teachers recognize that. I have tons of great memories of St. B and I am still close friends with those I met in high school and even St. Emile School. My friends and I became members of St. Paul’s College at the University of Manitoba, where we still meet for lunch!

Co-Curricular Highlights

I was very involved in Envirothon and continue to be today by volunteering with the organization. I was active on the Debate team which greatly improved my public speaking skills. I quite enjoyed Youth Ministry (now Campus Ministry) and because of this I attend mass at St. Paul’s College to keep the spiritual part of my life active. I also was a member of the recruitment team.

Proudest Moment at SBDHS My proudest moment at SBDHS was graduating! It is a wonderful moment when you can see all the work you’ve put into your studies be recognized and celebrated.

Best Advice for a New Student
