West Hill Artist in Print!

Henna Deonarine Henna Deonarine picture

Henna Deonarine (grade 9) is West Hill's first student to be published in O.K. K.O. O.K., a magazine published by the TDSB's Urban Indigenous Education Centre. Her artwork entitled, "School Life," was inspired by Inuk artist, Annie Pootoogook which depicts feelings of isolation the pandemic had brought upon her generation. O.K. K.O. O.K., features student artwork and writing from across the board that is authentic and inspires responsible relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities. Our school is proud of Henna being the first West Hill student to be a part of an important and impactful publication!

June is Pride Month!

TDSB celebrates Pride every month

In June, we celebrate Pride in the TDSB. It’s an opportunity to celebrate diversity and raise awareness among all staff and students about the rich culture and history of our 2SLGBTQ+ community.

Please check out the TDSB GSA Network, which is a space for 2SLGBTQIAP+ students, staff, and their allies in the TDSB to find community and resources.

This year, we celebrate with more in person events as Pride is happening live in the City this year!

Ministry of Education’s New Online Learning Graduation Requirement

E-learning

On March 30, TDSB emailed parents/caregivers about the Ontario Ministry of Education's new graduation requirement for secondary students to complete two e-Learning credits as part of the 30 credits required for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). It applies only to students who entered Grade 9 on or after September 1, 2020 (now in Grade 9 or 10). 

The email also indicated that students may withdraw from the new online e-Learning requirement. A parent/caregiver or student (18 years of age or older) may withdraw by completing and submitting the Opt-out/Withdrawal form. No explanation or reason is needed to opt out/withdraw. If you already completed the form, no further action is required. If you haven't filled out the form and wish to opt out, the form is attached here and can be sent back to the school at westhill.ci@tdsb.on.ca or submitted to the Guidance Office. 

Please visit the online learning graduation requirement web page for more information. If you have questions, please contact the Guidance Office.
