For the 2019-20 school year, our student trustees are:
ROLE: Student Trustee
SCHOOL: Waterloo-Oxford District Secondary School
I am a Grade 12 student at Waterloo-Oxford District Secondary School (WODSS). At school, I am involved with many clubs and teams such as Safe Caring and Inclusive Schools, Student Activities Council, Photography Club, Badminton, Rugby and Football. I’m also involved with DECA, and recently a world champion in the Automotive Services Marketing (ASM) category. On top of that, I am the publicity and social media manager for the Esports for High School Association. I am a member of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet squadron 530 HAVOC. In my spare time, I love to fly as I am a pilot, play cricket and ski!
I believe that my involvement with the Waterloo-Oxford and Wilmot-Kitchener-Waterloo community puts me in a great position to best represent the student body at the school board, and the diversity of voices/opinions we have in our region.
I look forward to my position as a Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) student trustee this year as I have many goals for the 2019-20 school year. I am committed to safeguarding the voice of our board’s student body and making sure all concerns, issues and comments are addressed equally. With the help of the Student Senate, we are going to have an amazing year! It is my duty to represent WRDSB students and make them feel valued. I can’t wait to get started!
ROLE: Student Trustee
SCHOOL: Eastwood Collegiate Institute
I am a Grade 11 student at Eastwood Collegiate Institute (ECI). I am a part of the Integrated Arts Program with a double major in visual arts and productions technology, with a concentration in media arts. At school, I am Co-Program Director of our radio station, I am involved with Student Council, Arts Council, Mock Trial, Media Communications and various arts-related groups. In the community, you can find me performing on stage, belting out a musical theatre tune, or in a cafe with my guitar. In my spare time, I love to listen to music, paint, read and travel.
I am passionate about education and I look forward to my position as a Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) student trustee this year. I have many goals for the 2019-20 school year, including encouraging all secondary schools to be in attendance and active participants at Student Senate meetings. Engagement with all students in the board is essential in order to best advocate for all students. I plan to talk to as many students as possible to better understand their opinions, concerns and hopes for their education. I believe in including all voices, and that ultimately, this is the most important responsibility of a student trustee. I look forward to what the future holds for the upcoming school year and representing the amazing community of students within WRDSB.
