ORANGE SHIRT DAY – Thursday, September 30th

Orange Shirt Day is an annual event that started in 2013 to recognize the legacy of the Residential School System for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit families and communities. It is a show of support and understanding of the history of the school system that impacts many Indigenous families today. We encourage all students and staff to show their support of Indigenous education everyday by wearing ORANGE on this day.

Frances tied for the highest average of all TDSB graduates.  With a 99.7% average Frances has been awarded the title of TDSB 2018 Top Scholar.  All the while, she has been active in Parkdale’s vibrant student life of teams and clubs.

In addition to this honour, Frances is also one of a very rare few who has achieved a perfect score on her IB Diploma! Congratulations are in order for this outstanding result in the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate programme.  

Frances is continuing her studies at Princeton University.

PCI is thrilled to see a perfect score of 45 two times in the past few years!  Tony Chen also achieved a perfect score upon graudating from our I.B. Diploma Programme. Tony has since completed his Bachelor of Health Sciences at McMaster University, and continues his studies at the same university.  He is pursuing a combined MD/PhD in Biochemistry.

Tony echoes the sentiments of many Parkdale IB grads when he states, “It was an experience which challenged my resilience, intellect, and creativity, teaching me the confidence to confront obstacles and rise to the occasion. It gave me an opportunity to learn from an engaged cohort of classmates and a passionate team of teachers, both incredible sources of inspiration and support….Thanks for the great memories Parkdale!”
