Defenceman Oliver Felixson of St. Malachy’s High School is the Swagelok Student of the Month.
The 17-year-old from Helsinki, Finland, continues to make a smooth transition into the New Brunswick education system. Felixson is working diligently to improve his English with his English Language teacher and English tutor. He often studies and completes his assignment independently, but has the confidence to approach his teachers and school administrators when necessary. Felixson was also nominated for student of the month in October and November by Jennifer Craft, the guidance counsellor at St. Malachy’s.
