Ring of Peace Kathi-Wallace.jpg

Yesterday, approximately 1,000  students and staff and community members gathered together in the rain to stand united against hate, discrimination and intolerance. 
 
Some of the most powerful words of the day came from our students who spoke about their experiences. They reminded us how hurtful words, stereotypes and jokes can be. 
 
They challenged us all to learn more about each other, to not make assumptions and to stand up when we hear hurtful words being spoken or see that others are uncomfortable.
 
We must all take responsibility for the cultures that we create in our schools, and we must continue to create schools that reflect our values.
 
This takes all of us working together, standing together. It was very powerful yesterday seeing so many people coming together to promote peace, respect and inclusivity. Thank you to everyone who helped to organize and support this wonderful event

Texas Delegation visits YRDSB

Earlier this week, we welcomed some visitors from Texas. Thank you to the schools who hosted our guests and helped to highlight the work that we have been doing. It was an excellent opportunity to showcase the efforts in our Board related to equitable and inclusive education, and to promote student and staff leadership.
 
Our guests were impressed with the professionalism, knowledge and experience of our staff and were able to take away important learnings.

 

Sincerely,

Kathryn Wallace
Interim Director of Education.
