Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

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.

John Buchan Senior Public School (GR. 07-08)

John Buchan Senior Public School opened in 1969 and was named after the thirty-fifth Governor-General of Canada who served from 1935 - 1940. 
Our goal is to create a community of adolescent grade 7 and 8 learners whose intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development is enhanced in a caring, safe and positive environment. Our students learn and practise social responsibility through a focus on Character Education embedded in our academic and co-curricular programs.
We enjoy a diverse population of approximately 240 students drawn from six feeder schools. John Buchan is part of a campus community that includes Pauline Johnson Junior P.S. and Stephen Leacock Collegiate. It is located in the same building as Stephen Leacock.
