ECSLIT hosted our 4th face to face meeting that revolved around February’s virtue, Love. The meeting took place at the Toronto Catholic District School Board on February 9, 2017.
We started matters differently this meeting, it began with a pizza rush!
Look at all these happy pizza people!
After everyone was settled in, April and Nilo began with the usual prayer reflecting the virtue of the month!
Next up we had our Mike talk where Mike Consul gave advice to all the students on how to get a girlfriend/boyfriend… Just kidding, Mike gave important advice on how to appreciate and love one another.
That transitioned into our guest speaker Arianne Cayao, Mike Consul’s co op student, who spoke about the different types and forms of love.
What is agape love? Comment Below
Not only is February the month of love but it is also Black History Month. In essence of Black history month, we had Mike G. from St. Goretti give a spoken word presentation, ONE Love.
Next Up we had Dwanye Matthews!
Dwayne Matthews is a life and education strategist. Dwayne delivers presentations internationally on the “Secret 4” thinking framework and digitally curated step-by-step guidebooks that with student success.
Previously Matthews was the Canadian executive director of an intelligence and technology-scouting firm with a focus on finding new technologies to help Fortune 500 companies forecast future opportunities.
Our next Guest speaker was Andrew Peacock who spoke about Canada’s 150th anniversery and celebrating all the things that make us proud to be Canadians’
Afterwards we procceded with our challenge for this month, newspaper chairs!
Students were responsible to create their own chairs using newspaper and tape to support the weight of a Director of Elementary Affairs April!
To make things more difficult, we had Dwayne Matthews test out the newspaperchairs as well!
Finally to make matters much more harder, we had Mike Consul sit on top of a teacher!
That concluded our February Face to Face meeting!
The challenge for next month is to bring in School Supplies for the Philippines! Notebooks, pens/pencils, erasers, pencil cases, pencil crayons, markers, paper and anything else school related you can think of would be a blessing to the less fortunate 🙂
