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.


This year, the TDSB recognizes Children’s Mental Health Week (CMHW) from May 3 to 7, 2021.  To help support student mental health and well-being for all, the Professional Support Services team has developed a wide variety of resources in line with this year’s theme of Coping, Caring and Connecting. Please access these resources below and also the MENTAL HEALTH TOOL KIT for STUDENTS, a TDSB resource for students.

Mowat Celebrates Tamil Heritage Month!

Tamil Heritage Month is proudly recognized during the month of January at the Toronto District School Board.  This year our theme for Tamil Heritage Month is:  Our Histories.  Our Legacies.  Our Homelands.  (எமது வரலாறுகள்எமது மரபுகள்எமது தாயகங்கள்).

Each one of us carries a unique story and experience that we either bring into this country or is shared to us by our families.  As Canadians from many facets of life these identities shape who we are and build the foundation of this great nation.  Our Histories/எமது வரலாறுகள் speaks to the lived or shared history each of us carry. Our Legacies/எமது மரபுகள் addresses what we either left behind in our native country or have created for ourselves that sets us apart from others. Our Homelands/எமது தாயகங்கள் recognizes that each one of us can have more than one homeland and each lived experience makes us stronger.

Toronto has the largest Tamil population outside of the South Asian subcontinent with thousands of TDSB students and staff members identified as Tamil.  The importance of building awareness, creating a strong self and collective identities, and understanding one's own roots and rights are important objectives of the Tamil Heritage Month volunteer planning committee.

To mark Tamil Heritage Month at the Toronto District School Board in January, various educational opportunities were offered to students to learn about the history, culture, and traditions.   The offerings included a poster contest that invited all students to participate to submit an image that reflected this year’s theme.  The three selected images will be posted on our websites and will be shared with all our schools.  Secondary students were invited to participate in a Poetry/Spoken Word challenge that also reflects this year’s theme.  Selected pieces will be shared digitally as well and presented at a virtual Poetry Night on Monday, January 31, 2022 from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

For further information about Tamil Heritage Month, please view our power point on interesting facts on Tamil customs and traditions.Please visit the Heritage/History Month website  under Tamil Heritage Month for additional learning resources, Daily Quotes/facts that may be shared through daily announcements at schools to start the day throughout the month of January.
