Mayoral candidates visit students at Trafalgar

Four of the Town of Whitby’s five mayoral candidates joined Head of School, Adam de Pencier, and the students and staff of Trafalgar Castle School in chapel on October 17 to discuss the upcoming municipal election, which takes place on Monday, October 27.

Mayoral candidates Donna Butler, Don Mitchell, Lumy Omat and Ros Whitby took time out of their busy schedules to share more about their background and what they see as the most pressing priorities for the Town of Whitby. Mayoral candidate Bob Hartley was unable to attend due to a previous commitment. While the students are not yet eligible to vote, the discussion offered insight into the election process, the candidates’ campaign platform, and what it means to pursue a career in public service.

Following the chapel discussion, candidates and Prefects were invited back to Mr. de Pencier’s office for light refreshments and an opportunity to further engage in discussion about the election campaign.

While voting day is not until October 27, advance voting began October 16. The elected mayor will take office effective Monday, December 1. Best of luck to all the candidates!

In early October, students in grades 5-8 gathered in the Resource Centre to learn about a new component of their advisor program known as LIKA -Leading in the Knowledge Age.  With a focus on the encouragement of self-directed learning for students, LIKA offers a set of tools and abilities to help students deepen their skills and abilities for learning over time.

The cornerstone of this program is to build essential competencies in the areas of: work ethic, communication, independent and peer learning, teamwork and networking.   Trafalgar students will focus on one competency per month so that they are able to gain a full understanding of exactly what each one is, and how it is a foundation to learning at The Castle.  For example, October’s LIKA competency is work ethic. 

These competencies have also been identified as the essential skills for future leaders and tomorrow’s agents of change – exactly what every Trafalgar girl aims to be!  

For more information on this program, please contact Mrs. Christina Schindler, Director of Research.
