Adminstrators' Message

Be a leader!  Be a learner!  Have a voice and have fun!”


Welcome to Anne Frank P.S.!  At AFPS continue to uphold the Mission, Vision and Values of the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) and honour the memory and legacy of Anne Frank.

Of the 267 schools named after Anne Frank in 18 countries, we are the only Canadian school named after her and as a result, we will continue to implement the five basic principles of Anne Frank Schools:

  1. Pupils and teachers act in the spirit of Anne’s ideals. They interact with each other on a basis of equality and justice, and show mutual respect.
  2. Anne Frank Schools set aside time in their timetables to discuss the Second World War, the Holocaust, present-day forms of discrimination and xenophobia, and themes such as freedom, diversity and mutual respect.
  3. Teachers encourage pupils to read Anne Frank’s Diary.
  4. To spread Anne’s thoughts in and around the school, Anne Frank Schools organize activities around the above themes.
  5. Anne Frank Schools participate in the network of Anne Frank Schools. Via, for example, the website they exchange information and ideas.

At Anne Frank PS, in alignment with the Director’s Annual Plan, we continue to centre student achievement and success, and our School Improvement Plan highlights these areas:

  1. Championing equity and inclusivity
  2. Empowering leadership
  3. Building relationships
  4. Well-being and mental health

We look forward to continuing our learning, unlearning and relearning journey with Anne Frank students, staff, families and community members.
