TDSB Celebrates Sikh Heritage Month

Monday, April 01, 2019
Categories: Great Things

Sikh Heritage Month is celebrated at the TDSB during the month of April. On March 22, 2016, Trustees voted to designate April of each year as Sikh Heritage Month, making TDSB the first school board in Canada to do so, and matching recognition by the Province of Ontario in 2013.

Sikh Heritage Month is to provide an opportunity for staff, students and community members to learn more about Sikh traditions and history, and celebrate the many contributions of Sikh Canadians. The theme for the year is A Century of Pioneer Families. We acknowledge that in 1919, Prime Minister of Canada Robert Borden at the Imperial War Conference was pressured after the great Valour of soldiers to ease restrictions of wives and children to join their husband and fathers in Canada.

A poster to reflect our theme has been created in collaboration with the Sikh Museum of Canada. Look for these posters in schools -- it is our hope this poster goes beyond the hallways and into the classrooms and workplaces and is used as an opportunity to continue system dialogue on equity and inclusive curriculum throughout the year.

The Sikh community is just one of the many ways that made our school board so rich in its diversity and we're proud to celebrate this heritage with everyone.
