Ava Joa (Grade 8): Ava has a very unique sense of style that is truly worth trying.

Jenna Lam (Grade 10): -40 degrees!? Who can survive that? Luckily, Jenna has a lovely back story which proves that she is truly a winter expert!
“I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where we get 7 months of straight-up snow. I mean like, our old house was on a hill and we couldn’t open our basement door for half a year because there is so much snow buildup. I’m pretty used to -40 degree weather, because warm outfits are the key to surviving there. I don’t have a specific outfit I wear, but right now, I’m wearing a pretty warm puffy long coat over my uniform.”
Atticus Macintosh (Grade 8): Atticus gets into the winter season by wearing his very own “Pigonsy,”as he likes to call it. He loves to wear some Christmas pieces as well accompanied with his favourite fuzzy socks.
“Well on a really cold day, I wear Christmas fuzzy socks and blue thick pj’s and a long sleeved pj shirt with a green hoodie and lastly, a bat onesie, I call it. I call it “The Pigonsy (pig-on-zy)”
Summer Cannell (Grade 8): Like many of us, Summer likes to layer to keep herself warm. She also loves to wear her fluffy snow boots. So cute!
“I’m more of a layer kinda person. I wear like 1000000 layers of sweaters. I wear a long sleeved shirt, Lululemon leggings and snow boots that have fluff on top.”
