All school fees applicable to your child will be posted on School Cash Online. Once you register, you can choose to purchase the items or activities using a debit or credit card. You will be able to see when the school has a new item posted online for purchase and you will also have the option to be notified whenever your child has a new school event requiring payment.

Registration will open the week of August 29, 2017.  To register for School Cash Online, please visit https://tdsb.schoolcashonline.com  OR please click on the TDSB School Cash Online icon to the right  then select “Get Started Today” and complete the three registration steps.

You can also contact the School Cash Online Parent Help Desk at 1-866-961-1803 and parenthelp@schoolcashonline.com.

Grade 12 MCI Student Saad Baig and His Team Named Overall Best Entrepreneurs and Innovators (2017) at the John Dobson Entrepreneurship Cup

The SHAD program is an annual opportunity for Grade 10, 11, and 12 students to learn about science, technology, engineering, arts, and math in a university environment. They live in residence, attend lectures, and participate in workshops over the course of a month. The program accepts 900 students each year. This year's theme was reducing Canada's energy footprint.

This past summer at the Carleton campus, Saad Baig and his team designed a colour changing roof that utilizes the energy of the sun and maximizes the efficiency of your HVAC system year round. Saad's group was then chosen to represent the Carleton campus at the National John Dobson Entrepreneurship Cup. At this event, Saad's team achieved an unprecedented record of sweeping four awards as well as winning overall best entrepreneurs and innovators of the year for 2017. Kudos to Saad Baig and his team.
