As the year comes to a close…

We reflect back on all of the memories we have made in Leonard, recognizing another amazing year in and outside of the dorm. Our last months in Leonard House ended with many celebrations both as a house and as a whole school community.

After a lovely house BBQ (photos available here), we said goodbye to our Grade 12’s at Prize Day (photos available here, thank you Jason Li) while remembering all of the fond memories we have made with and because of them.

Although we have been busy studying for exams, we recently attended the Undergraduate Prize Day ceremony to recognize academic and co-curricular accomplishments.

  • Ruhi Patwardhan – Classical and International Languages Award

Holiday House Dinner 2018

Leonard House held their 2019 Holiday House Dinner pretty close to home this year… in Williams Hall! Dressed in pajamas, Leonard House celebrated the holiday season in style! After quite the dinner buffet, the girls had a surprise visit from Santa Claus who distributed their Secret Santa presents while a wood-burning fire was projected and holiday jingles played. It was a dinner to remember!

Stayed tuned for more holiday photos on our Flickr account

International Language Christmas Service

On December 14, Leonard House attended the “International Language Christmas Service” in the Memorial Chapel. Organized by the members of faculty in the Language Department, several ladybugs partook in the service by reading passages in different languages including Croatian, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish, showcasing the diversity of both Ridley and Leonard House alike!
