Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate Institute

Welcome to Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate Institute 

(GR. 09-12)


Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate, founded in 1969, was built on a solid foundation of academic achievement, community involvement, alumni support and excellence. Students are provided with a wide range of learning experiences, both academic and co-curricular, so that they are prepared for any post-secondary option they may choose.

Excellence in teaching is the cornerstone of Mowat. Teachers are caring professionals who are committed to creating an atmosphere in which students can develop a positive self-image, become independent learners, acquire skills for future employment, enjoy the pursuit of academic excellence, participate in extra-curricular activities, and demonstrate respect for themselves and others.

Hindu Heritage Month at the TDSB: November 2022

The TDSB is proud to recognize Hindu Heritage Month during the month of November because of a motion passed in April 2018 by the Board of Trustees.  Further on December 8th, 2016, the Province of Ontario passed the Hindu Heritage Act, 2016 by declaring that the month of November in each year is proclaimed as Hindu Heritage Month,

Hinduism is one of the oldest living religions which have flourished for over 10,000 years.  It is an occasion to recognize and celebrate the rich tapestry of traditions, teachings and values that are integral to Hinduism and practiced by millions around the world today.  November is an opportunity to celebrate the Hindu way of life, examine its impact and contributions to world culture, and recognize values which promote compassion, tolerance, and inclusion.

The theme this year selected by the TDSB Hindu Heritage Month Volunteer Planning Committee is:  Bhoomi Devi:  Our Sacred Mother Earth.

Please see the attached document for the full announcement on Hindu Heritage Month.

November is Indigenous Education Month 

November is Indigenous Education Month at the Toronto District School Board. This month is an important reminder to centre First Nations, Métis, and Inuit perspectives, voices, histories, and contemporary realities across the TDSB. It is an opportunity to learn from Indigenous perspectives on treaties, Indigenous leadership, achievements, resurgence, futurities, and creativity. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action is a strategic direction in the Board.

Throughout November, students, staff, and community members honour a number of important days to deepen knowledge, to learn from our shared history, and to build stronger relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples.

Treaties Recognition Week is the first full week of November, November 7th-11th.

November 7 is International Inuit Day.

November 8 is National Indigenous Veterans Day.

November 16 is Louis Riel Day in Ontario.
