Student Leadership & Experiential Education

Leadership Conferences for Next Year: Next year, we hope to have more opportunities for students to attend leadership conferences/camps as organizations begin to open up in-person events again. Information for these opportunities will be sent out at the start of the 2022-23 school year, and students will need to apply for the conferences. Currently, we are planning to take 12 students to the Ontario Student Leadership Conference (OSLC) in Niagara Falls, Ontario from November 6-8, 2022. This conference is open to Grades 9-11. There may also be an opportunity to attend a CAIS Student Leadership Conference in the spring for Grade 10 students.


Senior School Student Leaders for 2022-23: In April and May, the students in grades 8-10 and Middle and Senior staff voted for their student leaders for next year. We would like to introduce the student leaders to our school community:

  • Prefects (Grade 11): Yusuf Afif, William Carvalho-Guertin, Liborio Ciccarello, Max Depatie, James Downey, Nate Mitelman, Lambros Papadopoulos, and Yikai (Ken) Zhao

  • House Heads (Grade 10): Nicolas Capolicchio (Macaulay), Luca Kestenband (Speirs), Jack Salkovitz (Wanstall), and Benjamin Vineberg (Lucas)

  • House Representatives (Grade 9): Ryan Boucetta (Wanstall), Andrew Carsley (Lucas), Nicholas Cesta (Macaulay), and Shen Hudon (Speirs)
