Youth in Action is excited to announce that our WE Walk for Water event was the most successful fundraising event that YIA has ever had at CKSS. Together, with our incredible CKSS community (that’s YOU) WE raised $7173.50 to bring clean water and sanitation to our WE Village of Namelok, Tanzania. It takes a village to make an event like this happen, and we would like to take a few minutes to show some gratitude for the support that this awesome CKSS community showed for our WE Walk for Water event, our students and for our WE Village in Tanzania.
The Leadership course prepares students to offer assistance and leadership to others in their schools and communities. The CK students were tasked with a WOW project. “Cupcakes for Cancer” was run by Mishaal Farooq, Avneet Johal, Taruny Ramamoorthy, Tanisha Batra and Maha Khilji. The class also ran a candy scavenger hunt and a dodgeball tournament. Funds collected were donated to their chosen charities and a delicious time was had by all.
On May 15, CK participated in the annual HDSB Secondary Public Speaking Competition, held at White Oaks S.S. Each school in Halton was invited to send students that are eager to demonstrate their talents for public speaking. Speeches were divided into Junior and Senior categories and students were given creative freedom on topics and delivery strategies. Speeches were judged on: content – organization, effectiveness, originality, logic, and evidence; delivery – voice, body language, eye contact, enthusiasm, confidence, and overall impression. You guessed it – CKSS’ own Grade 12 student, Yaser Tasqie won!! CK couldn’t be happier for this awesome young man!
On May 10, 15 Business CKSS students traveled to the University of Guelph to participate in the first ever University of Guelph Business Pantheon. Students were put into teams of 4 and competed in five different events. The events included analyzing cases, team building activities, pitching a new product and other challenges that tested their business knowledge.
The CKSS Junior team consisting of four Grade 10 Students, Misty Guinn, Shaurya Manocha, Omer Hashmi and Joseph Sadgove came home with two second places finishes and one third place finish.
