February is African Heritage Month at the Toronto District School Board and an opportunity to recognize the experiences, contributions and achievements of African Canadians. This year’s theme is “From Africa to the World.”
Throughout the month of February, we will highlight the many contributions that the African community has made by offering several educational opportunities to our students, staff and the TDSB community. Opportunities include student visits to the ROM to experience exciting exhibits on the theme of Identity and Belonging to attending the Know Your Worth Conference. This conference is a joint collaboration with the TDSB and the Black Law Students’ Association and will take place at York University on February 28, 2018.
In addition, students across the system were invited to submit poster designs and six word essays embracing the theme “From Africa to the World.”
