The Telegram is Cedar’s monthly magazine. It is produced and written by students, for students. It’s an opportunity for students to develop and hone their skills as reporters and writers.
With utmost attention paid to maintaining behaviour, academic performance, and attendance all year round; Cedar expects these students to serve as role-models for their peers.
Cedar’s first ever podcast series launched with the intention to highlight topics’ relevant to students of this day and age; not only touching up on topics regarding academia, but aiming to have meaningful conversations about distinct areas. Students and professionals are invited to be a part of this and shed light on their personal perspective/experiences to help give our student body some real-life insight.

It's human nature to want to be surrounded by people and have a shoulder to lean on. However, there's a fine line between having friends and basing your entire life and identity around them. In this podcast, we discuss how spending time by yourself is important for growth and discovery. May it be silent drives back home, reading a book or even talking to yourself while doing everyday chores - one needs time to themselves to think and understand who they are, and to learn to live independently.

This series started off later in 2017, with the sole purpose to highlight numerous passions of various individuals. Ranging from faculty members, to support staff, and our vast student body – 10 episodes of Passion Project have been released to date.

#PassionProject: Dillon D'Cruz (Episode 1)This week, we're launching a new series, where we will bring you people from across the Cedar family who have one thing in common: they all possess an undeniable and untamable passion for something.
