Toronto Catholic District School Board

TCDSB Schools Are Off to the Races! 


The annual Cardboard Boat Race events are just around the corner. The Secondary competition is being held on Tuesday, November 27th and the Elementary competition will be on Thursday, December 6th, both from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Patrick Catholic Secondary School, 49 Felstead Avenue, Toronto.


There will be over 20 teams competing at each event, from across the Toronto Catholic District School Board. Teams of four students, will be participating in construction, racing and weight challenges, constructing their boat in the morning using only duct tape and cardboard, and then participating in both a speed and weight challenge in the swimming pool in the afternoon.


This event encourages essential skills such as leadership, decision-making, team-work, math & technology, as well as an awareness of the Skilled Trades. Trophies and medals will be awarded to the top three teams. Winning teams will go on to represent the board at upcoming regional events hosted by Skills Ontario.


Cardboard for these events has been generously donated by Atlantic Packaging Group, in Scarborough.


As part of the Elementary Cardboard Boat Race we are asking teams to donate to the Toy Mountain toy drive.
