The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Statement Re: Tragic Events in Christchurch, New Zealand

Friday, March 15, 2019
Categories: News Releases

We were shocked and saddened to learn of the hateful acts of violence at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand that happened overnight. Men, women and children were among the dozens killed for no other reason than they were practising their faith in a place where they should feel most safe.

Our thoughts are with the victims of this tragedy, their loved ones and the larger Muslim community. We can assure you that acts of hate and Islamophobia such as this only strengthen our resolve to engage our students and staff in important conversations about building a more inclusive and compassionate society.

As always, we remain committed to supporting our students and staff, some of whom may be experiencing feelings of vulnerability or insecurity following these attacks. Media coverage at times like this can also be very challenging for some students. Our Professional Support Services staff have assembled tips for parents that may help with discussions with children.

In memory of the those who lost their lives, flags at TDSB Education Centres will be lowered today and through the weekend.
