On Thursday, June 24, students from across the Toronto District School Board voted online to elect their Student Trustees for the 2021-22 school year. Students were also able to learn more about the candidates via online campaign videos before casting their votes. This new, modern way of running student elections resulted in an increase in the number of students interested in the positions and overall votes. This year, more than 4500 votes were casted, which is an increase of 1500 from the previous year.
Congratulations to our new Student Trustees:
Earl Haig Secondary School
Central Toronto Academy
Isaiah Shafqat, who will be attending Kapapamahchakwew - Wandering Spirit School in the fall, will continue in his role as Indigenous Student Trustee. His term was recently extended by the Elders Council. Evan and Jyoti will join Isaiah as Student Trustees for the 2021-22 school year.
Elections for Student Senate Executives will be held in the fall.
