A message from our Chair and the Director of Education

posted Nov 7, 2019, 12:48 PM by Ruth Teszeri


Dear Halton District School Board students, families, staff, and community members,

We are asking for your help in the creation of our next Multi-Year Plan! 


The HDSB has a multi-year strategic plan (known as our Multi-Year Plan or MYP) that guides our collective actions and decision making as an organization to ensure we are always focused on providing a high standard of education for students. 


We are currently in the last year of our current MYP, and are starting the development of our next four-year plan which will take effect September 2020. This will include opportunities for face-to-face input at two large community sessions as well as online surveys designed specifically for students, staff, parents/guardians and community members. These consultations will take place during November and the data collected will be used in the development of the plan over the next three to four months. 


We are asking for your help in sharing your views on our current plan and identifying areas we should focus on in the new plan.


The online surveys will be available on the Board website from Nov. 4 - Dec. 2, 2019. 


Two Community Roundtable Discussions will take place in the North and South areas of Halton on: 

  • Monday, Nov. 18, 2019 from 7 - 9 p.m. at the Milton Staff Learning Centre
    (215 Ontario St S, Milton)

  • Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019 from 7 - 9 p.m. at Garth Webb Secondary School
    (2820 WestOak Trails Blvd, Oakville)


We look forward to your participation in helping to shape the next four years in the Halton District School Board!


Sincerely,


Andréa Grebenc                      Stuart Miller

Chair of the Board                  Director of Education

Mural Title: Love Means No Gender

posted Jun 19, 2019, 12:18 PM by Ruth Teszeri   [ updated Jun 20, 2019, 1:46 PM ]

This mural represents a message of hope:  hope for acceptance, hope for a cleaner, less polluted future, hope for diversity, and hope for a better world to live in.

There are many symbols in this mural; the coexist logo that is spelled out by different genders, religions and identities with the melting earth symbolizing global warming. The different colored flowers that represent different pride flags are my favourite hidden message in this piece.  Each flower lei represents a different pride flag; Gay, Bisexual, Pansexual, Transgender, and Asexual.  Each ‘hidden message’ in this mural is there for a reason. I like to believe that this mural will carry on as a symbol of acceptance, diversity, love, and hope, even after I’ve graduated from high school.
