Leadership Opportunity: Grade 10s Only

Image result for COLS

Here is a leadership opportunity for Grade 10 students being offered through the Central Ontario Leadership Seminar (COLS).  Based on an application process here at IRHS, one grade 10 student can be selected to attend a three-day event from May 24th – 26th, 2019. The event is held at University of Toronto, Mississauga.  All expenses, except for transportation to and from the site, are paid for by sponsoring community clubs, corporate sponsors, and individual philanthropists.  Additional details will follow.

The goals of COLS are:

  • Encourage and prepare the next generation of Canada's civic, social and corporate leaders.
  • Provide young leaders with forums to learn "how" to think, not "what" to think, by offering independent and interactive opportunities for critical thinking.
  • Encourage personal growth by promoting positive thinking, goal setting and community involvement.

Feel free to visit their website at:

The application process is a short essay on the following question:  “Describe what you consider to be your most significant contribution to your school or larger community. Why was it important to you or others?”  

By Friday, January 18th, please compose a 100-150 word answer to the question and share it with me, Mr. Pearce, and be committed for the weekend of May 24-26th.  A candidate will be selected from the submitted applications by January 23rd.  
Should you have any questions please feel free to ask.
