Safe and Supportive Schools/Character Education/Equity Education

Every student has the right to learn in a safe and supportive environment.  The York Region District School Board has a Safe Schools Policy and a defined procedure to implement the policy.  Both the policy and procedure support the view that student discipline involves a continuum of support including prevention, intervention and appropriate consequences.

Black Walnut Public School supports the development of Character Education in the York Region District School Board.  While parents, staff, and students model positive character attributes in our daily interactions, we also focus on the monthly attributes during the morning announcements and in assemblies.  Individual teachers highlight the attributes in their classrooms.  It is important to us that all students, their families, and our staff feel like they matter and that they belong.  

We live in a multicultural, multiracial, multifaith society. Black Walnut's School Council is reflective of the community, where the majority of our families speak English as their first language.  Black Walnut Public School believes in the intrinsic worth of all students so that each feels respected, valued and validated. We celebrate diversity and model equity and inclusiveness in all our programs and practices.  We assist our students to define, detect and reject all forms of discrimination which limit their potential and that of others.​​​
