TDSB’s Changing! Have your say!

Today, the Toronto District School Board launched the largest consultations of its kind in Board history. The consultations mark the beginning of a conversation about the changes that are needed to meet the future needs of students and will help form the TDSB’s new Kindergarten to Grade 12 strategy.
These consultations are an opportunity to contribute to the future of our students in our schools. The conversations will ensure our future plans are based on the programs that best support our students as we develop a plan to guide us into the future. Simply put, we need the right programs in the right spaces in the right places.
We know how important it is to have the right opportunities and supports in place to prepare students for the future as they transition from TDSB schools to future learning choices, careers and life as responsible, caring citizens in our democratic society.
Over the course of the next few weeks we will be consulting at SuperCouncil Meetings, Quad Dialogues, FOS Focus Groups, 4 City Wide Forums, Ward Councils as requested, FOS Meetings, TSAA Executive Meeting, Employee Group Executive Meetings, and Senior Team Council. Community members will also have the opportunity to participate online by filling out a survey or participating in a virtual consultation session.
We want to begin by starting an open, inclusive dialogue around how we can bridge today’s education with the future needs of schools and learning. The dates and times for the city wide consultations are below. All meetings are from 7 – 9 pm.

Fun low ropes obstacle courses are at the heart of the Junglesport discovery program. It promotes fundamental movement skills, coordination and cooperation. Students climb, crawl, swing, leap, balance and always have a smile on their faces. All students wear a helmet.

Students love to climb and travel rope bridges. They feel great while learning about trust and responsibility in our explore program. Students learn the basics of climbing on our rock walls and other vertical challenges. They build self-confidence and an awareness of what their bodies can do. All students wear a harness and a helmet.

Tumpane Wins Co-Ed Soccer Tournament!

Tumpane was victorious at the WR2 Family of Schools Annual Co-Ed Soccer Tournament on Friday October 5th.  The boys and girls from Tumpane played 4 games going undefeated while not even allowing a goal.  They had 4-0 victories over Derrydown and Blaydon, a 3-0 defeat of Stanley and then finished the day off with a hard fought 0-0 draw against Shoreham.  As a result of their efforts all team participants were given a first place ribbon and the school will also be receiving an engraved plaque to hang in our front foyer  (Look for it soon!!!!!) 
 
Mr. Harvey and Mr. Belizaire were very proud of how this team represented themselves at the tournament!
Congratulations to Tumpane’s First Ever Co-Ed Soccer Team!
