Ms. Michele Charles
Michele is an alumna of SJK. She attended from 1981 to 1985 when the Upper School was located at “the Warehouse” on Phillip Street in Waterloo. “As a part of the first co-ed grade 9 class, I have fond memories of the spirit and strong community atmosphere of the school, even though the surroundings were sparse. Nothing like the state-of-the-art campus we have today!”
