Starting Spring with Student Success!
On Tuesday April 5th, L2L hosted our third multi-school Student Leadership Conference at Bishop Reding Catholic Secondary School in Milton. With over 100 L2L tutors attending from 6 schools in the Halton Public and Halton Catholic School Boards, the conference was a terrific opportunity for our tutors to gain and build on their leadership skills through active application of creativity, teamwork and performing arts to help them in realizing their vision within and beyond high school. The students took on the challenge of designing small skits to demonstrate their journey of success through various aspects of their high school lives, and performing in front of their peers and teachers. It was a fabulously engaging experience with stellar performances!
The purpose of these conferences is to bring L2L tutors together to offer them activities and learning aimed to further develop their leadership skills not only as L2L tutors, but as students within their schools and as contributing members of society.
Our leadership program has garnered a lot of interest within the school community, attended by teachers, principals and school district superintendents with glowing reviews. The support provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation allowed us to host the day and we look forward to maintaining the momentum generated with this program.
