Student Council

At the beginning of each semester, students are encouraged to get involved in student government and the organization of extracurricular activities. All students are given the opportunity to join in an election campaign in an effort to become elected as a GLCT student representative. This provides students with an amazing opportunity to develop their leadership and interpersonal skills, through the organization of holiday events, school trips, athletics, and even charity fundraisers. Many North American universities also look at student involvement outside of the classroom when making admission and scholarship decisions. It is our hope that by providing a way for students to engage in planning their school activities, it will make the time they spend at GLCT that much more rewarding.


Field Trips and Holiday Events

The school offers a variety of outings and organized activities throughout the year. We often make trips as an entire school to Canadian attractions such as Niagara Falls, Mt. Saint Louis, The Royal Ontario Museum, Canada's Wonderland and more. We also have a variety of class outings to Toronto landmarks, performances and educational settings to enhance our student's classroom experience. In addition, students can also attend a variety of University Campus tours throughout the year. This provides students with invaluable hand-on learning experiences.
