March 26, 2019 – Student leaders file into the boardroom at the CEC for CSLIT’s March General Assembly meeting. This month, students were introduced to the student trustee candidates for the 2019/2020 school year.
Following the Waving Flag dance and the prayer, each student trustee candidate presented a short introduction video and completed a series of rapid fire questions. This allowed the students to have an idea of who was the right fit for the job.
Although this assembly was only an introduction to the candidates, at the general assembly on April 30th, students will have the chance to officially vote for whom they want to represent the student body of the TCDSB for the 2019/2020 school year.
Up next, current student trustees, Joel Ndongmi and Taylor Dallin, informed students about the Walkout on April 4th, 2019. This Walkout involved high school students leaving their classes at 1:15 PM to protest against recent government policy changes to our education.
To wrap up the assembly, students participated in group discussions to express their thoughts about the various changes that will negatively impact the education system. These changes include, but are not limited to: increased class sizes, banning cell phones, mandatory e-learning, and more than 5844 teacher jobs cut. More information can be found here.
Your voice matters so come out and attend our next general assembly on April 30th to vote for the new student trustee of the TCDSB.
Next General Assembly:
April 30th, 2019
