We started our meeting with prayer led by Student Leadership co-op students Adreanna and Grace from Francis Libermann.

After prayer, ECSLIT’s new Director of Elementary Affairs, Michael Meija (Gr. 12 Cardinal Newman)  and new Student Trustee, Joel Ndongdi (Gr. 11 Brebeuf College) led student leaders in an icebreaker!

After an epic heads and tails battle. This student leader was victorious! (Let us know your name and school in the comments below).
