April is Hispanic Heritage Month

March 31, 2015

This year, we are offering special screenings of Our Voices in School in the Greater Toronto Area. Created in 2012 by eight Latino-Hispanic students in Toronto schools, this special 1-hour presentation features the experiences of these youth in our schools and sheds a light on what it is like to be a Latino-Hispanic student in Ontario. If you are from a TCDSB school, click here for more information. For a presentation in another school board, please click here. See what others have to say about Our Voices in School:

“Given the honest accounts of each student’s experience and the reaction by the audience it was clear that all educators could learn from these messages in order to create more welcoming and inclusive learning environments.” –  Rory McGuckin, Superintendent of Learning, TCDSB
