Giulia Barile

Awards honour high schoolers’ academic and athletic achievements

In his book Last Child in the Woods, author Richard Louv links a lack of experience of nature in the lives of wired youngsters with disturbing childhood trends such as rising obesity and depression.

It’s a worry that seems far from a student like Giulia Barile of St. Anne Catholic High School.

On the honour roll through her high school career, she has won city and regional championships in soccer, and coaches and referees the sport. She hopes to qualify for the Lancer varsity team when she starts studies in kinesiology at the University of Windsor in September.
