March ECSLIT meeting

March 7, 2019 – The Elementary Catholic Student Leadership Impact Team (ECSLIT) gathers in Quigley Hall at the CEC for the second last face-to-face meeting of the year!

ECSLIT’s Keynote Speakers this month were from WE Charity. Director of Educational Partnerships, Greg Rogers and co-op Student George Yachouh spoke about WE Walk for Water campaign.

Every month we have one teacher share a best practice. This month we had Ms. Lucie Cirone from Blessed Margherita teach our elementary leaders how to make tote bags out of t-shirts! What a great alternative to plastic bags!

Student Trustees Joel Ndongmi (Brebeuf, 12) and Taylor Dallin (Cardinal Carter, 11) also spoke about the role TCDSB Student Trustees. Each April, interested grade 10 students can apply for this leadership position (2 year term).

Our challenge this month was to make toilet paper roll cars. Each ECSLIT school was challenged to create a toilet paper car and race it down a ramp. We had a tie between St. Maria Goretti and St. Roberts! Congratulations to both winners.

For our next meeting, each ECSLIT School is asked to create their very own Rube Goldberg Machine. Watch this example

This year, our very own Director of Elementary Affairs, Chloe Panganiban (Cardinal Newman, 11) is collecting donations for her trip to the Philippines this summer. She is asking for any clean & gently used backpacks She will be taking your donated bags to the Philippines and filling them with various supplies and toiletries to donate to those less fortunate. 

Please bring your challenge items to our next meeting, on:
