LIBRARIAN RETIRES: Deborah Novack may be accustomed to turning pages in treasured texts, but the precious chapter she concluded June 2017 covers 29 significant years as a librarian at Laurier Macdonald High School in St. Leonard. As a working mother of two daughters, one in medical school and the other a recent graduate of UBC, she empathizes with mothers juggling households and careers.

The students performed four short plays written by Lina Maiorano and the themes covered were: Anti-Bullying; education is the road to success; not being in a relationship is okay; and correcting bad behavior. The audience was in awe and shared their positive feedback with the cast. Lina enjoyed sharing her knowledge of theatre with her students and is forever gratified to Ms. Lattanzio and the EMSB for allowing her to share her expertise.
