Toronto Catholic District School Board

Elementary Cardboard Boat Races


The 2019 TCDSB Elementary Cardboard Boat Races were held on December 11th at St. Patrick Catholic Secondary School. Over 20 teams competed at the event from across the Toronto Catholic District School Board. 
Teams of four students participated 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.

The event encouraged essential skills such as leadership, decision-making, team-work, math and 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 was generously donated by Atlantic Packaging Group, in Scarborough. Teams also donated a toy to the Toy Mountain toy drive.​

Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Cardboard Boat Races:

1st Place — St. Ambrose Catholic School

2nd Place — St. Cecilia Catholic School

3rd Place — Holy Name Catholic School
