Food for Kids Program

We know that the closure of schools has been difficult for many families, especially those who rely on school-based Student Nutrition Programs. The TDSB and the Toronto Foundation for Student Success have teamed up to provide families at your school with $50 grocery store food cards (one per TDSB student). If your family would benefit from this card, please complete the registration form online.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Welcome to the Nelson Mandela Park PS Web site.  We are committed to "building a Culture of Caring" at our school where each and every student is provided with the supports they need to reach their full potential.  For this year, our School Improvement Plan focuses on the following:

Academic Achievement

Numeracy – Addressing educator learning needs in understanding the student numeracy learning continuum.

Literacy – Comprehensive literacy with a focus on using Culturally Relevant and Responsive Pedagogy.


Promoting an anti-oppressive stance within an explicit focus on confronting anti-black racism.


Building staff strategies to support student coping skills to build feelings of optimism and safety.

If anybody has any questions about our School Improvement Plan or any other matter please come and talk to us at the school or call us at 416-393-1620.
