Learning Leadership
- 6th annual GECDSB student leadership conference -
 
Secondary students from the Greater Essex County District School Board will develop their leadership skills on Friday, October 23rd at the Ciociaro Club in a workshop hosted by the GECDSB Student Senate. Now in its 6th year, this student-run event gives student leaders an opportunity to share best practices and learn about success and challenges in student engagement at other schools.
 
Approximately 250 students in Grades 9 to 12 will spend the day planning, brainstorming and networking.  The agenda includes presentations and activities facilitated by a mix of students and community members.  Sandwich Secondary grad Sarah Ryrie will talk about her experience in student government as past President of the Student Representative Council at St. Clair College.  A demonstration by Sandwich Secondary School’s pep squad will kick off a school spirit activity, and a presentation on Random Act of Kindness Day will allow kids to plan for activities at their school.
 
The conference begins at 9:30 a.m. and runs until 1:30 p.m. For more information, contact Michelle Marcuz @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10289.
