ECSLIT held the first ECSLIT online meeting of the new school year on Thursday, October 20th from 3:30-5:00. The meetings was comprised of many cheesy jokes, fun games, magic tricks and an amazing guest speaker! It was a huge success as 60 students and teachers participated in the event. A big thank you goes out to all the staff and students who participated and our lovely guest speaker, Andre Fullerton.
With students and teachers signing in, ECSLIT began the Pre show at 3:30 PM with a competition between April, Nilo and Mike. The trio had to say a few of their best jokes, with students deciding who had the funniest or (pun)niest jokes. Mike won the students overs by having the majority of students voting for him with April and Nilo tied for second.
Around 3:45 PM, the ECSLIT Online Pre show was coming to a wrap! Now it’s time for the meeting to begin. As usual, the meeting starts with a prayer led by Nilo and April.
After the prayer, students participated in a friendly trivia competition against other schools. Schools had to work together in order to obtain the highest amount of points to win the prize of the month! This month’s prize were 10 tickets to the Angel Foundation of Learning Gala happening on October 28th. Congratulations to St. Bruno for winning the competition! Please remember to contact Mike for more information!
One of the 16 questions that students must answer the fastest in order to get a point. Questions ranged from many different topics such as Halloween and Virtues of the Month. (The answer to the photo above is: WE!)
Before getting into our guest speaker, Mike had an amazing magic trick to show all staff and students. Many students and staff were left in amazement!
Mike the Magician, with the help of his assistant Simeon, amazes all by making a quarter disappear. Mike then makes the quarter magically reappear in one of the items placed on the desk. Wow!
For this month’s online meeting, the ECSLIT team had the chance to have the amazing Andre Fullerton speak as a guest speaker. Andre Fullerton is a TCDSB Supervisor of Outreach, Community Use of Schools. He is also the coordinator of Focus on Youth (FOYT), a great program that provides employment and leadership opportunities to youth living in the Greater Toronto Area.
Andre asks all students to follow their passion and do what they are best at when choosing a career. Andre says to not always focus on the money and to not make it the most important priority on a list when choosing a career. Find a balance between your talents, passions, and the salary you can make.
As 5:00 PM comes around the corner quickly, it’s time to say good-bye to all of the student leaders. The first ECSLIT online meeting of the school year was a huge success and a lot of fun! A big thank you goes out to all the students, staff, and Andre Fullerton for participating in the online meeting. The next online meeting will be on Thursday, November 17, 2016.
As for another quick reminder, the next ESCLIT face to face meeting will be on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 at the Catholic Education Centre. Please bring in your canned food for We Scare Hunger! We hope to see you there!
