• Cash assistance to the families of more than 320,000 vulnerable children,
• Child friendly spaces and school heating for 105,000 children,
• Thermal blankets for almost 240,000 children.
TDSB Field Services has schedule our School’s network upgrade on Tuesday, January 9, 2018. They will perform activities that include installing new network equipment, changing IP addresses, testing the new equipment and network, decommissioning the previous equipment and network, and updating documentation to reflect the changes.
Although Field Services does not anticipate it will take a full day to perform the change from the current network over to the new Bell network, they must allocate a full day from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to perform the work.
On Tuesday, January 9th, the scheduled implementation day of the new Bell network, there will be no wired and wireless (Wi-Fi) network access to services including but not limited to:
- Internet access and all applications accessible from the Internet
- Home Drives
- Shared Drives

- Trillium School Information System (SIS)
- All SAP Systems
- SharePoint (org sites)
- Outlook Web Access (OWA)
- TDSB Print services
- VPN services
If all the activities are completed ahead of the plan outage window, the school will begin enjoying the new Bell network immediately.

Each year, families are asked to donate $75 per child or $150 per family to fund
the cost of hands-on arts and science experiential learning in the classroom,
along with other special activities and performances.
So far this year Enrichment Funds have covered Theatricks in the classroom and
Scientist in the Schools for all grades. Planned activities for the new year
include a garden/outdoor educator leading programs for all grades in the spring,
and bilingual woodworking workshops for the primary grades booked for February.
The Enrichment Fund needs your donation to cover the cost of this programming.
Planned events will need to be cancelled if funds are not raised.
Pay-what-you-can donations are also welcome. Cheques made payable to the
