Adine reached out to me recently to talk about the enormous impact IPS had on both of her children, Philip (2007 Alum) and Juliette Day (2008 Alum). She described how Brad Carter inspired Philip to lean in to his passion for food and he credits Brad with helping him with the vision that’s resulted in opening his first restaurant in Deep Cove last month Scratch Kitchen. Read a recent North Shore news article about Phil here.

wedding coupleJuliette was chosen valedictorian for her year – an honour she didn’t expect as a student who struggled academically with Dyslexia. IPS’s teachers taught her how to advocate for herself and coached her to bring her voice into the room.

She married a Bowen Island boy, Matthew Trevino, this past August and they celebrated at Eagle Harbour Yacht Club. She’s also working at Scratch Kitchen, helping her brother out with the business.
