June 3rd: Jewish Students Group Meetup

We thank all the students who attended the previous virtual meetup. On Monday, June 3, 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., we have another opportunity for Jewish students in grades 7-12 to virtually connect with others at different schools around the city, and share common experiences, feelings, ideas and achievements in a safe space, facilitated by Jewish OCDSB staff. For more details and to register, email [email protected] 


Indigenous Summer Learning Program


This summer Indigenous students entering grades 9-12 can earn an academic credit while learning from Indigenous teachers, Elders and Traditional Knowledge Holders. Join the Indigenous Education team for a 3 week in person learning program.


This opportunity is ideal for Grade 8 First Nations, Inuit, and Metis students looking to earn a credit while transitioning to Grade 9. It is also open to all other secondary First Nations, Inuit, and Metis students, including those entering Grade 10–12 in the fall, and those currently in Grade 12 who require an additional credit. Secondary students will have an opportunity to learn with and mentor younger students while earning a credit toward their OSSD.
