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.

April is Latin-America History Month

April is Latin-America History Month at the TDSB


Latin-America History Month at the TDSB is recognized during the month of April.  Across the TDSB, we have over 5000 students and over 21 countries from Latin-America that will be represented as we learn and celebrate the diverse ethnicities, nationalities, cultures and languages of Latin-America. Linguistically, the diversity of peoples with Latin-America ancestry sees over 500 hundred languages spoken, which encompasses Indigenous and African languages such as Kuna and Garifuna.


This year, we will elaborate on the concept of Abya Yala, a decolonized term from the Kuna Language, referring to geographical region of Latin-America as Indigenous Land and explored through the Indigenous Prophecy of the Eagle and Condor. This diversity is not easily accessed in mainstream sources of knowledge nor are the experiences of students from Latin-America.  The TDSB is leading the equity work in transforming schools to equitable spaces where images, words and actions alike uplift students and their families of Latin-America!


This year, we celebrate with an art submission, inspirational quotes of Latin-America/Abya Yala, and our second annual Latin-America History Month Conference: Hear Our Voices: Our Living Experiences! Escuchen Nuestrxs Voces: Nuestrxs Experiencias!
