Character Development

Character development at the TDSB is about helping students learn and practice positive character attributes. When we build good character, we build strong communities. In the school community, character development is woven into programs and practices it becomes a way of life. Student success is dependent on a safe, caring and inclusive learning environment where all students feel valued. This starts by teaching our students about the value of character – respecting themselves and each other, making positive contributions to their school and community and thinking critically and creatively.

Character Development:

  • Develops the whole student 
  • Contributes to a healthy, safe and orderly school environment 
  • Creates a collaborative school where the teaching and learning can be the focus 
  • Provides high expectations for learning and behaviour 
  • Engages students in their learning 
  • Is Universal 
  • Is Respectful 
  • Strives for an ever growing depth of self-awareness, self-discipline and understanding
