TVDSB receives Pride London Festival Award
TVDSB was honoured to be the recipient of the Pride London Festival Organization Contribution Award. The award, which is given to an organization that has made a positive contribution to London’s LGBT community, was presented to the school board at the 2016 Pride London Festival Awards celebration.
The TVDSB continues to work hard to ensure an inclusive culture across the entire school district, recognizing that the principles of safety, equity and inclusivity must be echoed in all aspects of school life. Some examples of the programs and changes the TVDSB has supported include The Pledge to End Bullying, the Hear It! Stop It! Campaign, and all-gender washrooms.
Also this year, the TVDSB hosted its 10th Annual Gay-Straight Alliance Conference. The Conference, which was attended by a record number of staff and students, celebrates diversity and empowers members of the LGBTQ community to find their voice.
