LCVI wins the Great Pasta Challenge by a hair – only beating out Haliburton Highlands Secondary School by .01 pasta boxes per student. Trillium Lakelands District School Board secondary schools collected a board-wide total of 8,493 boxes of pasta.
The Great Pasta Challenge is organized by the G7 Student Senate – a group of students made up of one representative from each secondary school elected by their peers to help communication between students and bring student issues to the Board of Trustees. Haliburton Highlands Secondary School was only .01 away from winning the challenge at 2.72 boxes per student, but it was LCVI who donated 2.73 pasta boxes per student, for a total of 2,221 boxes.
LCVI also won the local City of Kawartha Lakes trophy from the Kawartha Lakes Food Source, an umbrella organization that collects food for food banks throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes. All food items collected during the Great Pasta Challenge at TLDSB were donated to food banks throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Muskoka.
