If you could have every student at TCS read one book, what would it be and why?
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. This children’s book contemplates the pros and cons of self-sacrifice and the relationship between someone who always gives with someone who always takes.

What is your favourite day of the year at TCS?
The Christmas Carol Service. I love how the chapel is decorated and the atmosphere created by the candlelight. I like the sense of community that is created amongst the students, faculty and families in attendance.
