Toronto Catholic District School Board

​Joel Ndongmi

Student Trustee for 2017 - 2019

 

Joel Ndongmi is a Grade 12 student in the Extended-French program at Brebeuf College School. He is currently serving his second term as a Student Trustee.
 
Currently, Joel serves as the French Relations Coordinator for the Ontario Student Trustees’ Association-l’Association des Élèves conseillers.ères de l’Ontario (OSTA-AECO.) His work consists of facilitating relationships between francophone and anglophone students. He also helps plan OSTA-AECO conferences.
Within the TCDSB, Joel co-chairs the Catholic Student Leadership Impact Team.  He organizes monthly general assemblies open to all secondary students.  These general assemblies are full of leadership opportunities and provide students a space where they can openly voice their concerns. Joel believes that is essential to engage in meaningful discussions with the student body in order to effectively advocate in their best interest. With that in mind, he spearheaded the creation of a student-led collaborative inquiry. This project aims to elicit the voices of students in Urban and Priority High Schools through focus group discussions.
 
With French being his first language, Joel writes prayers and reflections and recites them in French during his school’s morning announcements every Thursday. Additionally, Joel is grateful to use his French language skills to help his peers with French homework after school. Within his school community, he serves on the Brebeuf Youth Ministry by reading at mass and supporting his school’s religious retreat programs such as Kairos.
 

As a Student Trustee, Joel aims to reinforce the communication between the student body and the Board. He hopes to empower students to get involved by informing them of the many opportunities available in the school board.
