Our November CSLIT’s meeting happened on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 on YouTube LIVE. Missed it? We have collected screenshots so you can see what went on during this awesome virtual meeting. You can also watch the livestream recording
The meeting was hosted by our Student Trustees Kathy Nguyen from Madonna and Keith Baybayon from Marshall McLuhan.
Julia, the CSLIT Faith Rep, led the land acknowledgment for the Indigenous people of Canada, followed by an opening prayer that focused on November’s virtue PEACE.
Let’s see who’s in the house! It looks like Cardinal Carter once again has the most student leaders in attendance.
As we move into the Christmas season, TCDSB student leaders were asked what they wanted for Christmas. Take a quick look at the ones listed. What’s on your Christmas wish list?
We welcome Superintendent Michael Caccamo to say a few words of leadership and encouragement.
Superintendent Derek Chen also came to speak with us. He talked about the importance of student voice and how we can all make a difference. Mr. Chen really focused on how changes need to be made to make sure all groups are both heard and feel welcomed in our TCDSB family.
Our guest speaker for the month is Sam Demma, a youth motivational speaker. He talked about being a better person and the importance of taking small consistent actions. Watch Sam’s full speech on the recorded Livestream.
Sam helped a friend who was struggling by buying him something as simple as a taco. This small action had a big impact to his friend’s perspective. Same preached the importance of Small Consistent Acts of kindness.
Sam is asked “what advice would you give to someone giving up on their dreams?” Sam’s response: It’s okay to switch your dream, but know that any big dream you have takes time, hardwork, and dedication.”
It’s game time!!! CSLIT Exec members Stephen Chiu and Junette Tindan tried to guess the titles of each Christmas movie based on the clues shown on the screen. Student participants who answered correctly in the chat box have a chance to win a box of pizza delivered to their doorstep. Can you guess what Christmas movie this is? (Answer revealed below).
Next: MIKETALK!!! Michael Consul discussed the how the biggest “ship” in “leadership” is RELATIONSHIP.
You can’t be a leader on a stranded island if you’re by yourself, because there’s no relationship. Leadership is about service and doing go for other people.
Let’s see who will win! The winner gets a pizza and 2 toppings delivered straight to their house!
