“Life at Mount Erin was a fairytale,” he recalled. “I had it easy, lots of kids wanted to be my friend.”
This author remembers senior students always taking care of Sam especially in the busy corridors at the end of lessons. “Staff and students were always willing to help me out.”
Sam’s favourite aspect of Mount Erin was the MESEM leadership program. A program run by the students, for the students. Lunchtime sporting and singing activities, school assemblies, school fundraisers, charitable events among other initiatives were organised during Sam’s tenure by Mr. Bernard Silva.
“I loved it,” Sam said of his time in MESEM. “The leadership opportunities, teaching me how to become organised and how to overcome challenges.” “Silva was a great teacher and someone I still try to catch up with when I return home.” “MESEM was a huge part of my school life and has helped me become the person I am today.”
