Ontario has designated the week beginning on the third Sunday of November as Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week to help promote safe schools and a positive learning environment.
During this week, our students, staff and parents work together create learning environments that are caring, safe, peaceful, nurturing, positive, and respectful where all students are able to reach their full potential.
Promoting caring, safe and accepting spaces is an important priority of the TDSB.
